National Webinar of Celebration and Next Steps
Start: August 16, 2018• 8:30 PM • Eastern Time (US & Canada) (GMT-05:00)
For this public webinar we welcome all people who are on committees in their states, who have come to Campaign events over the last several years, who joined the 40 Days of Action, who have been dedicated followers of the movement via social media: this is a webinar for everyone!
The webinar will be streamed live on facebook.com/anewppc and poorpeoplescampaign.org/live.
In the coming months, we will focus on organizing, mobilizing voters and building power among the 140 million Americans living in poverty, particularly in the often-ignored South. Poor and low income people from California to the Carolinas are ignored by politicians from both parties. And even though there are 171 electoral votes from Maryland to Texas, much of the South is ignored in the political calculations made by campaign decision makers around elections.
A movement has to fight with the whole country and that’s exactly what we’re doing. We already have the people power, with organizing committees built in 40 states, including every single one that comprised the former Confederacy.
