Week 2: Linking Systemic Racism and Poverty: Voting Rights, Ending Mass Incarceration, Justice for Immigrants and Indigenous Communities, and Ending Islamophobia

The Poor People's Campaign: A National Call for Moral Revival is undertaking 40 Days of Action to launch a massive movement to address the evils of systemic racism, poverty, militarism, and ecological devastation. Every week for six weeks all kinds of people across the country will congregate at their state capitals to raise awareness about the unique and common ways they are affected by the evils.
