Poor People's Campaign: 40 Days of Action
Jun 18, 2018 at 10:30 AM
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.

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 10:30am 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 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 in Jeff City, meet us at 10:30am at Presbyterian Church, 324 Madison St, Jefferson City, MO. We will have a pre-march meeting, then march to the capitol at 11:30am!  The action should wrap up by 1pm.
