Join us for the largest digital and social media gathering of poor and low income people with our 43 state coordinating committees, 100+ organizational partners, 16 religious bodies, advocates, film,
music and TV activists and more. We want everybody who has a conscience, everybody who cares, and everybody who can from around the nation and world to see the faces and hear the voices of poverty.
We demand that the nation stop listening to the lies, stop moralizing to the poor about personal responsibility and stop blaming the poor. Instead, we demand that the nation finally address the scandal and immoral reality of structural poverty, systemic racism, ecological devastation, militarism and the war economy, and the distorted narrative of religious nationalism that existed before COVID-19.
We demand that the voices of the poor and low income people be heard. We refuse to continue to be quiet about 140 million poor and low income people in the U.S. and 250,000 people dying from poverty every year before COVID-19. This is not acceptable!
We demand that the Moral Agenda and Moral Budget of the Poor People’s Campaign: A National Call for Moral Revival be enacted. After seeing trillions of dollars transferred to corporations and the wealthy, we will not tolerate the lies of scarcity and the refusal to fully address systemic poverty and its interlocking injustices.
