Why we need a Poor People’s Campaign
Hi DR MARVIN,
Welcome to the Poor People’s Campaign: A National Call for Moral Revival! You’re now a part of a network of moral leaders in over 40 states who are shifting the moral narrative to bring much needed attention to systemic racism, poverty, ecological devastation, militarism and the war economy.
You’re joining us at a critical time for the Campaign. We just held the Poor People’s Moral Action Congress, which included the biggest presidential forum yet; a Moral Budget release, a Freedom School, and a hearing about poverty on Capitol Hill.
We know you’re eager to start taking action, so here are three quick and easy ways to get involved in the Campaign:
Sign up for text message alerts by texting MORAL to 909-75. We’ll reach out to you with the latest events and ways you can take action.
Become a Campaign supporter. Chipping in just $5 helps continue to organize and mobilize in our communities. With your donation, we will hold our political representatives accountable until our demands are met.
Follow us on Twitter, Facebook and Instagram and spread our message. We post live updates on what state groups are doing across the country and let you know how you can make a difference in your community.
The movement needs you, DR MARVIN. The only way to make sure our Campaign continues to change the system is with members that take action together. We can seize this moment and demand that every elected representative respond to the real emergencies facing 140 million poor and low income people in America.
Forward together, not one step back!
