June 20th Moral March on Washington Takes on Ecological Devastation



On June 20, 2020, the Poor People’s Campaign: A National Call for Moral Revival will hold a “Mass Poor People’s Assembly and Moral March on Washington.” Because of the coronavirus pandemic, this event, which touches upon five key issues, will be held entirely online. As part of a week-long collaboration with Free Speech TV we’ll be presenting coverage of this historic event for five days leading up to it and today we’ll focus on how the Poor People’s Campaign will take on the all-important issue of ecological devastation.

Sonali Kolhatkar speaks with Rev. Erica Williams, Co-Director for the Moral Fusion Student Organizing Fellowship Program of the Poor People's Campaign: A National Call for Moral Revival about the need for the march and her hopes for the future.
