Poor People’s Campaign: Rally to Fight Poverty Not the Poor

Saturday, June 23, 2018 | 10:00am

Washington National Cathedral, EDOW and others will participate with thousands from around the country at this final event of the Forty Days of Action. We will show our elected leaders we will no longer allow attention violence to keep poor and disenfranchised people down. In the face of systemic racism, systemic poverty, ecological devastation, war economy/militarism and distorted moral narrative of religious nationalism—we must engage in mass nonviolent moral direct action. We must have mass voter registration and mobilization. And we must engage in mass power building in poor and low wealth communities declaring We Won't Be Silent Anymore!
