URGENT FUNDRAISING APPEAL!
Support the networks of the Global Women’s Strike (GWS), Women of Color in the GWS and Payday men’s network delegation to DC to take part in the final week of the 40 Days of Action launching The Poor People’s Campaign: A National Call for Moral Revival!
The week of June 18-23, multi-racial grassroots campaigners with the networks of the Global Women’s Strike in Pennsylvania, Massachusetts and California will travel to Washington DC, joining thousands of others across the US for Week 6 of actions called by The Poor People’s Campaign: A National Call for a Moral Revival, including a final Global Day of Solidarity and Sending Forth Call to Action Mass Rally on Saturday, June 23 at 10am on the National Mall, 7th Street Stage.
With weekly actions organized in 35-40 states across the country since May 14, bringing together diverse parts of the movement, and over 2,000 arrested in nonviolent moral fusion direct action, The Poor People’s Campaign carries forward the work of Dr. Martin Luther King and many others in organizing the original Poor People’s Campaign fifty years ago. Please support our effort to take part in and help build this historic national movement bringing people together to end poverty, racism, the war economy and ecological devastation. These movements don’t come often in a lifetime, we don’t get many chances like this.
We urgently need your help to raise $3000 to cover our costs for travel, housing, food and water, child and elder care, first aid and rally materials. Below are photos highlighting some of our active involvement in the Poor People’s Campaign so far. Thank you for your support and solidarity!
