Over the past two years, the Poor People’s Campaign: A National Call for Moral Revival has reached out to communities in more than 30 states across this nation to join in fighting against systemic racism, inequality and poverty, ecological devastation, war economy and militarism, and national immorality. As stated on their website, “When confronted with the undeniable truth of unconscionable cruelty to our fellow human beings, we must join the ranks of those who are determined not to rest until justice and equality are a reality for all.”
For the past few weeks, this campaign has committed itself to “40 Days of Moral Action,” which is scheduled to conclude with a mass rally on Saturday, June 23rd at 10am on the National Mall. On the morning of the June 23rd rally, National City Christian Church is hosting a Disciples Gathering at 8:15am. We invite you to join the Disciples Center for Public Witness for this important rally—and in the struggle for justice that will continue long after the rally ends. This movement is growing fast and gaining more support everyday. We hope that you will take action and try to get involved.
