#ElPasoFirme: A Call to Action Against White Supremacy March on the Border

Gather at 5:30 p.m. at the corner of Father Rahm Ave. and El Paso St. (downtown) and ending at Plaza San Jacinto (Plaza de los Lagartos), 111 West Mills Ave. where we will hold a rally.

The Poor People’s Campaign: A National Call for Moral Revival is organizing a 25-state “We Must Do MORE Tour!" from September 2019 to May 2020. This tour will lead into the Mass Poor People’s Assembly & Moral March on Washington, where thousands of poor people and moral agents will gather at the nation’s capitol on June 20, 2020 to demonstrate their power. We will demand the implementation of our Moral Agenda and call all people of conscience to engage in deeply moral civic engagement and voting that cares about poor and low-wealth people, the sick, immigrants, workers, the environment, people with disabilities, first nations, the LGBTQ community, and peace over war.

The We Must Do MORE Tour is kicking off in El Paso. The Border Network for Human Rights reminds us why we must begin in this place:

"As communities of immigrants and refugees, El Paso has a place in all of our hearts: A community that straddles borders and cultures, a symbol for safety and inclusion for people from around the world, citizens and non-citizens alike - a symbol of hope and of home.  

That symbol has been attacked for a reason. Our families were attacked by a man who sought to make us disappear. He may be detained. But his worldview is incited, enabled, and promoted by individuals in public office.

What happened here was foreseeable. Two tendencies have intersected that invariably will lead to this violence. The uncontrolled access to weapons of war that has enabled mass atrocities in cities over and over again has converged with the white supremacist political agenda."
