Dear DR,


Today, on Juneteenth, we look back to 400 years of compromises with white supremacy in order to understand the pressing need for radical reconstruction of our nation. Tomorrow we proclaim a new vision forward. Join us for the Mass Poor People’s Assembly and Moral March on Washington.

Broadcast times: Saturday, June 20 at 10 am and 6 pm ET and Sunday, June 21 at 6 pm ET.

 

On our page, you can pledge to join and encourage your elected officials to do the same.


We are excited to announce that the entire program will be open captioned with ASL interpretation and a Spanish-language broadcast will also be available at june2020.org/es.

 

If you or someone you know does not have internet access, please share this dial-in # to call-in to the assembly:  Dial-in number: (425) 436-6277   Participant Code: 521837

 

The program will also be streamed on radio stations, online media outlets, and TV networks reaching around the world including MSNBC, Urban Radio, Time.com, and more!

 

On June 20th, we are building an international stage for the stories and solutions of poor and dispossessed people. They, along with 300 mobilizing partners including unions, religious denominations, and social justice organizations, will lay out a transformative vision for the nation. They will be joined by artists and activists including Former Vice President Al Gore, Danny Glover, Erika Alexander, Jane Fonda, David Oyelowo, Wanda Sykes, and Debra Messing.

 

This is the moral fusion movement for this moment and we are so honored to be in community with all of you.

 

Forward together, not one step back!

Listen to the Rev. Dr. William Barber's full sermon, ‘America, Accepting Death is Not an Option Anymore!' given live from the National Cathedral in Washington D.C. on Sunday, June 14th.

'We are Called to Be a Movement'

 

Rev. Dr. Williams Barber's rousing sermon 'We are Called to Be a Movement," implores us to come together and renounce the politics of rejection, division, and greed – to lift up the common good, move up to higher ground, and revive the heart of democracy. It is now available as a published book from Workman Publishing.
