FSTV is LIVE with the Poor People’s Campaign in Washington, D.C.
Free Speech TV is proud to be the only U.S. broadcast network that sent a dedicated crew to Washington, D.C. to cover the historic gathering of the new Poor People’s Campaign: A National Call for Moral Revival. The three-day gathering in the nation’s capitol serves as the culmination of the Poor People’s Campaign’s 40 days of moral fusion direct action around the country, and marks the launch of the next phase of the campaign.
From Selma, to the Colorado Statehouse, to steps of the U.S. Senate, Free Speech TV has committed to covering the Poor People’s Campaign because the campaign’s intersectional advocacy, rooted in a shared sense of common morality, has the potential to be a new and unsettling force driving us all to build a just world. National co-chairs Revs. Dr. William Barber and Dr. Liz Theoharis continue to center the voices, experiences, and injustices done to the poor and most disenfranchised in the richest country in the world.
In addition to live-streaming the events in D.C. beginning June 21, Free Speech TV’s co-founder, Jon Stout, has been an active participant in the campaign, organizing the Colorado contingent, and getting arrested in the course of two separate nonviolent direct actions on Capitol grounds.
