Somebody's Hurting Our People: Children, Women, and People with Disabilities in Poverty 

May 15, 2018

Join us Monday, May 21, in Olympia, for a rally and nonviolent moral resistance as part of the Poor Peoples Campaign: A National Call for Moral Revival. The second week's theme is "Linking Systemic Racism and Poverty: Voting Rights, Immigration, Xenophobia, Islamophobia and the Mistreatment of Indigenous Communities." The rally and program begins at 2 pm Rally at the Capitol Steps, 416 Sid Snyder Ave SW Olympia, WA.

The Poor People’s Campaign: A National Call for Moral Revival has emerged from more than a decade of work by grassroots community and religious leaders, organizations and movements across the nation. The purpose is to fight systemic racism, systemic poverty, ecological devastation and the war economy, and to shift the nation’s distorted moral narrative.

By engaging in non-violent moral fusion direct action, over a 6-week period in at least 30 states and the District of Columbia between May 13 and June 23, the Campaign forces national examination of these issues during a key election year. You do NOT have to risk arrest to attend this event. Find out more at PoorPeoplesCampaign.org.
