WV Poor People's Campaign Rally at the Capitol

Start: Monday, May 14, 2018 2:00 PM

We are one of over 30 states across the country and in Washington, DC heading to their state capitals on May 14 to force a serious national examination of the enmeshed evils of systemic racism, systemic poverty, ecological devastation and the war economy.

We stand together on May 14 to show the power of people united across issues and geography. We stand together because there are over 40 million people living in poverty in this country including 13 million children, and because although the U.S. spends more per capita on health care than any other country, 32 million people remain uninsured. And with fewer voting rights in place today for people of color than 50 years ago when the Civil Rights Act was passed, we stand together to say that we cannot go down this road any longer.

Join us at 2:00pm at the State Capitol Building on May 14 for the first action of the West Virginia Poor People's Campaign.  Email westvirginia@poorpeoplescampaign for more information on direct actions and training.

Everybody has a right to live!
