New York City Rallies for a Third Reconstruction!

Join the New York State 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.
New York City and New York State 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.

Date: June 7th

Time: 1130AM ET - 1PM ET

Rep. Carolyn Maloney's Office
1651 3rd Avenue, New York City, NY 10128-3679
