A National Call for Moral Revival

For years we have seen a kind of attention violence towards issues of systemic racism, poverty, and militarism. There was a time when our nation was fighting a war against poverty; now it seems we are waging a war on the poor. Our social fabric is stretched thin by widening income inequality while politicians criminalize the poor, fan the flames of racism and xenophobia to divide the poor, and steal from the poor to give tax breaks to our richest neighbors and budget increases to a bloated military.
At this time of intensifying political, economic, and moral crisis, with the lives of the most vulnerable and the spirits of all under vicious attack, people in growing numbers around the country are fighting back for their lives, communities and deepest values.
There is a resounding call to the very soul of this nation: We need a new Poor People’s Campaign for a Moral Revival in America.
Please join us in Milwaukee on August 28 for a mass meeting of the new Poor People’s Campaign for a Moral Revival of America, led by Poor People’s Campaign co-chairs Reverend Dr. William Barber and Reverend Dr. Liz Theoharis
