On Tuesday, June 5th, from 5:30-8:30pm - join us for an organizing meeting and training with the Poor People's Campaign: A National Call for Moral Revival. Learn about the story, structure, and vision of the campaign, and how you can take part. The second portion of the meeting will be a training in Nonviolent Moral Fusion Direct Action, for those who intend to participate in the 40 Days of Action.

50 years after Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King's assassination, The Poor People’s Campaign: A National Call for Moral Revival is taking up his vision, bringing together people across the country who are organizing to build a broad and deep national moral movement — led by the poor, impacted, clergy and moral agents and reflecting the great moral teachings — to unite our country from the bottom up. They are challenging four interconnected evils of systemic racism, poverty, militarism, and ecological destruction. The Campaign is in a season of 40 days of moral actions, started May 13th until June 21st, in at least 35 states and Washington D.C.

We hope you'll join us. Refreshments and childcare will be provided.
