Did you know that low income households spend seven times as much of their paycheck on water bills as wealthy households? And in areas like Flint, MI, the water that is getting piped in is still toxic? The Poor People’s Campaign recognizes that ecological devastation is ruining our planet and has a disproportionate effect on poor communities and communities of color. Jordan Schiele and Sunny Hamrick of Jerusalem Farm will join us for a discussion on why the Poor People’s Campaign is tackling ecological devastation as one of this national movement’s goals. We will also be looking at Pope Francis’ encyclical on climate change, Laudato Si, as a way to talk about how climate change intersects with poverty, racism, and the war economy.
