Gadsden, Alabama Rally and Press Conference for a Third Reconstruction
Start: Monday, June 07, 2021•12:00 PM
End: Monday, June 07, 2021• 1:00 PM
Join the Alabama Poor People’s Campaign: A National Call for Moral Revival on Monday, June 7th at 12:00 for our news conference and rally to demand a Third Reconstruction in America.
Alabama will join with states around the country and Washington DC to put our US Representatives on notice. Drawing on the transformational history of the First Reconstruction following the Civil War and the Second Reconstruction of the civil rights struggles of the 20th century, today we need a Third Reconstruction to revive our moral and political commitments to democracy and the founding principles of the country. With this resolution, we (1) acknowledge the deep harms we have suffered from systemic racism, poverty, ecological devastation and the denial of health care, militarism and the false narrative of white supremacist nationalist extremism and (2) commit to heal and transform the nation by addressing these interlocking injustices, beginning with those most impacted, with moral and just laws and policies.
