Join the West Virginia Poor People's Campaign as we host a Moral Monday March on Manchin at 5pm in Charleston, WV on June 14th. We are calling all West Virginians from the hood to the hollers to join us for a socially distanced, outdoor rally and march!
LOCATION: We will meet at Magic Island Park (the end nearest Pennsylvania Ave.)
PARKING: Look for the signs that say "Magic Island Parking". The parking for the park is under the I-64 overpass near the intersection of Kanawha Blvd. and Pennsylvania Ave.
We know that Senator Manchin's position on the filibuster is constitutionally inconsistent, historically inaccurate, morally indefensible, economically insane, and politically unacceptable. This position is hurting all West Virginians of all races, genders, and religions, and especially the 710,000 poor and low-income people in West Virginia (40% of people living in our state). We are tired of Senator Manchin abandoning us! This is why we must march on Monday!
West Virginians need a full restoration of the 1965 Voting Rights Act and expanded protections for our democracy, beginning with the right to vote for everybody. His call for "bipartisanship" goes against the interests of poor and low-income West Virginians, who desperately need living wages of at least $15 / hour, guaranteed health care, housing and an infrastructure plan that meets all of our needs.
That is why on Monday, June 14th at 5pm we are Marching on Manchin. We need all West Virginians of moral conscience to join us in Charleston. We must cry out from our state to let the country know that Senator Manchin is selling out the people of West Virginia and we won’t be silent anymore!
MARCH: Please bring water and wear sturdy shoes. Buses will be provided to shorten the march considerably for those who are unable to complete the entire march.
****COVID-19 Protocols: All participants will be required to wear masks and remain 6ft socially distanced at this event. Please do not attend this event if you are or have been feeling sick.****
