Poor People's Campaign
Earlier this month, we marked five years of the renewed Poor People's Campaign: A National Call for Moral Revival. Since 2018, millions of people across this nation have joined this Campaign to shift the narrative on poverty, to build a powerful fusion movement, and to move this nation towards implementing a Third Reconstruction Agenda that fully addresses the needs of poor and low-wealth people.
We've worked with hundreds of state coordinating committee leaders in over 35 states, we've released groundbreaking studies and reports that have uncovered the true toll of systemic poverty in our nation, and we've mobilized millions of people online and in person, all toward the goals of challenging the interlocking injustices of systemic racism, systemic poverty, the war economy, ecological devastation, and the distorted moral narrative of religious nationalism.
As we enter a new year, we express our deepest gratitude for your sustained engagement in this work over the years. We continue to do this work because we know how critical a sustained movement-building effort is to our collective effort to create a just and equitable society. We thank you for all the ways in which you have contributed to the Campaign's work in the past year. Every single act - joining us in the streets, organizing a community mass meeting, courageously telling your story at our gatherings, collaborating on our research efforts, volunteering to mobilize poor and low-wealth voters, donating any amount - it all counts. You have all played a critical role in the advancement of this Campaign's work, and we are grateful to work alongside you.
