POOR PEOPLE’S CAMPAIGN
On May 14, the Campaign launched its first nation-wide event of the season with nonviolent moral direct actions in over 30 state capitals.
Through highly publicized, non-violent moral fusion direct action over a 6-week period in at least 30 states and the District of Columbia, the Campaign will force a serious national examination of the enmeshed evils of systemic racism, systemic poverty, ecological devastation and the war economy during a key election year.
