Richmond, Virginia Poor People's Hearing

RSVP today and join the Virginia Poor People's Campaign: A National Call for Moral Revival and National Co-Chairs Rev. Drs. Barber and Theoharis as we hold a Poor People's Hearing in Richmond, VA to lift up the voices of the poor, directly impacted, and faith leaders, to demand that our nation's elected officials take action to fight systemic racism, poverty, the war economy and militarism, ecological devastation, and our nation's distorted moral narrative of Christian nationalism.
In this electoral season, politicians will be forced to listen to those who have been traditionally left out of the electoral process in this country; they will learn about the power of a new and unsettling force that is organizing across this country, and they will hear our demands!
We will not let another election cycle go by where politicians can run for office without talking out systemic racism, including voter suppression the attacks on immigrant and native communities, and the mass criminalization and incarceration of our communities; without talking about systemic poverty and the necessity of programs of social uplift; without talking about the war economy and ecological devastation that are blighting our people and the places we live; without talking about the distorted moral narrative that ignores the needs of the people.
