LGBTQ+ Moral March Delegation
Start: Saturday, June 18, 2022• 9:00 AM
Location:National Mall•TBD, Washington , DC 20009 US
The National LGBTQ Anti-Poverty Action Network (The Network) is calling on the LGBTQ+ community to join us for the Poor People’s Campaign’s Moral March on Washington on June 18, 2022. The Network is a member-based coalition of over 100 national, state, and local organizations working in the LGBTQ, anti-poverty, and anti-hunger movements to increase awareness about and action on LGBTQ poverty.
The Network is marching, because poverty is an LGBTQ+ issue. Despite the progress the LGBTQ+ community has made, far too many LGBTQ+ people and families are struggling to make ends meet. In fact, LGBTQ people are more likely to live in poverty and to access social safety net programs than non-LGBTQ+ people with childhood poverty being the primary pathway to poverty for low-income LGBTQ+ adults.
As LGBTQ people seeking queer and trans liberation, we are called to join the Poor People’s Campaign to assemble and march in the nation’s capitol as a moral fusion coalition in response to the pain caused to all of us when there are 140 million poor and low-wealth people in this nation. We are called to shift the moral narrative, put a face on the pain of our people, build power, and present before the nation a redemptive Third Reconstruction agenda.
