This sixth and final Action of Washington State’s Poor People’s Campaign is scheduled 2-4 pm Monday, June 18, Washington State Capital Building (416 Sid Snyder Ave SW, Olympia), with the theme: A New and Unsettling Force: Confronting the Distorted Moral Narrative.
Anyone intending to participate in nonviolent civil disobedience as part of this Action is asked to attend a training beforehand. This training is intended to ground participants in the values and goals of the campaign and to support individuals in making informed, personal decisions on whether to engage in nonviolent civil disobedience.
The Poor People’s Campaign: A National Call for Moral Revival emerged from more than a decade of work by grassroots community and religious leaders, organizations and movements across the nation. The movement is united together to fight systemic racism, systemic poverty, ecological devastation and the war economy, and to shift the nation’s distorted moral narrative. The Campaign aims to build a broad and deep moral movement – rooted in the leadership of poor people and moral leaders and reflecting our deepest constitutional and faith traditions – to put before the nation a moral agenda.
