Week 4 Albany Non-Violent Moral Direct Action
Start: Monday, June 04, 2018•11:00 AM
ECOLOGICAL DEVASTATION, CLIMATE CHANGE, AND THE RIGHT TO HEALTH: CLEAN AIR, CLEAN WATER, AND HEALTHCARE FOR ALL
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.
