The Mass Poor People’s Assembly & Moral March on Washington is going digital!
On June 20, we will hold the largest digital and social media gathering of poor and low-wealth people, moral and religious leaders, advocates, and people of conscience in this nation’s history.
A global pandemic is exposing even more the already existing crisis of systemic racism, poverty, ecological devastation, the war economy and militarism, and the distorted moral narrative of religious nationalism.
On June 20, the 140 million poor and low-income people across this nation will be heard!
The assembly is held by Poor People’s Campaign, an organization that seeks to build a movement to overcome systemic racism, poverty, ecological devastation and the war economy.
Rev. William Barber is co-chairing the Poor People’s Campaign, and AFGE is pledging to take a stand together by joining their digital mass gathering: A National Call for Moral Revival.
AFGE is a strong supporter of Rev. William Barber’s Poor People’s Campaign and our union participated in one of the largest interfaith, anti-racism gatherings in the country three years ago to demand justice and denounce racism following a white supremacist and neo-Nazi rally in Charlottesville, Virginia.
The program will be broadcast on Saturday, June 20 at 10 a.m. EST and 6 p.m. EST. It will be rebroadcast on Sunday.
