Poor People's Campaign: 40 Days of Action
Every week on Monday until Jun 18, 2018 from 5:30a to 1:00p
Organizer: Nick Pickrell

Across America, the Poor People’s Campaign is wielding collective action in May and June to abolish the “Triple Evils” of racism, economic exploitation, and militarism. We launch our season of non-violence on May 14 in Jefferson City and state capitols across America to target the epicenters of the country’s attacks on democracy and equality.

Join us at 6am as we march in KC and send off our multi-racial movement to Jefferson City. Black, white, and brown are coming together to meet the attacks on all Americans -- the poor, unions, workers, immigrants and refugees, the LGBTQ community, women, and low wage workers. At 12pm in Jefferson City, join the mass marches, rallies, and non-violent moral direct that will make history across the country. 

We launch our Poor People’s Campaign on May 14th to win the battle for America to be what it ought to be: A place where “opportunity is real, and life is free,” and “equality is in the air we breathe!” as Langston Hughes so beautifully said. The time is now!

To join us on May 14th in KC at 5:30-7am, meet us at 3230 Troost Ave. KCMO.

To join us in Jeff City, meet us at 11:00am at First Christian Church, 327 E Capitol Ave, Jefferson City, MO. We will march to the capitol and have a short rally starting at 11:30am!
