WEEK 3 (MAY 27-JUNE 2) MILITARISM, THE WAR ECONOMY, AND THE PROLIFERATION OF GUN VIOLENCE
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 poverty, racism, 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. Some will participate in civil disobedience to withdraw their consent from a status quo that doesn't prioritize the basic rights and needs of humans.
