Poor People’s Campaign Converges on D.C. on June 18



Poor People’s Campaign Converges on D.C. on June 18

Bishop William Barber II and Rev. Liz Theoharis, the co-chairs of the Poor People’s Campaign, have written a letter to President Joe Biden requesting a meeting with the White House ahead of their June 18th March on Washington. In the letter, the two leaders reminded Biden that when he addressed their gathering in September 2020, he “promised that ending poverty would be more than an aspiration in your administration.”

According to Barber and Theoharis, “We have offered a moral narrative that refuses to accept the lies of scarcity or partisan gridlock as excuses for taking action. We are determined to change the conversation about what is possible, so that we can ensure all of our justice, here and now.”
