Poor People’s Campaign: A National Call for Moral Revival - Mass Assembly June 2021
The Poor People’s Campaign is hosting a massive online assembly of poor people and low-wage workers in June 2021, followed by an in-person assembly the next year in Washington DC. On Monday June 21st The Poor People’s Campaign will launch a one year campaign fighting forward every day towards a massive, generationally-transformative Moral March on Washington and Poor People’s & Low-Wage Workers’ Assembly on June 18, 2022. The Mass Poor People’s Assembly and Moral March on Washington drew more than 2.4 million viewers when it aired over the weekend of June 20, 2020. The program focused on the 140 million people, or 43% of the country, who live in poverty or are low-income in this country. And 700 people die each day from poverty — that’s 250,000 people a year. And that was before the COVID-19 pandemic that disproportionately infected and killed people of color and poor people.
