The Poor People’s Campaign: A National Call for Moral Revival is uniting people across Wisconsin, and the nation, to challenge the evils of systemic racism, poverty, the war economy, ecological devastation and the nation’s distorted morality of religious nationalism.

Liz Theoharis will join us to talk more about the Mass Poor People's & Low-Wage Workers' Assembly and Moral March on Washington (and to the Polls!) Tour that is stopping in Madison on March 28th.

​Background:​
The Mass Poor People's & Low-Wage Workers' Assembly and Moral March on Washington and to the Polls Mobilization Tour will make at least ten stops nationwide to Mobilize, Organize, Register and Educate people for a movement that votes as we move towards the Mass Poor People’s & Low-Wage Workers’ Assembly and Moral March on Washington and to the Polls on June 18, 2022.

They will be joined by faith leaders and artists to demand this nation do MORE to live up its possibilities:
• MORE to fully address the interlocking injustices of systemic racism, poverty, ecological devastation and the denial of health care, militarism and the war economy and the false moral narrative of religious nationalism.
• MORE to change the narrative and build the power of those most impacted by these injustices.
• MORE to realize a Third Reconstruction agenda that can build this country from the bottom up and realize the nation we have yet to be.

 

The Mass Poor People’s & Low-Wage Workers’ Assembly & Moral March on Washington and to the Polls on June 18, 2022 will be a generationally-transformative declaration of the power of poor and low-wealth people and our moral allies to say that this system is killing ALL of us and we can’t…we won’t…we refuse to be silent anymore!

 

“It is NOT just a day of action. It is a declaration of an ongoing, committed moral movement to 1) Shift the moral narrative; 2) Build power; and 3) Make real policies to fully address poverty and low wealth from the bottom up.” - Bishop William J. Barber II and Rev. Dr. Liz Theoharis 

 

And, make plans now to join the mass gathering and day of declaration in D.C. on June 18th.
