A new moral movement across America is being organized to rejuvenate Dr. King’s Poor People’s Campaign and renew his vision to eliminate the “triple evils” of racism, economic exploitation, and militarism. The Poor People’s Campaign: A National Call for Moral Revival is bringing people together across our nation’s dividing lines to build a broad and deep national, moral movement led by the low-wage workers, the poor, clergy, and moral agents of change in rural and urban Missouri.
On Saturday March 24th, come together with people of faith from across the metro who will join national faith leaders, Rev. Liz Theoharris and Rev. Jimmie Hawkins for a special day of learning, multi-racial movement building, and strategizing, as we put our faith into collective action and renew the Poor People’s Campaign in KC and across the state.
Dr. Wessel-McCoy will teach us the origins, development, and goals of the original Poor People’s Campaign that Dr. King and others launched in 1968. Regional and local faith leaders will host a panel discussion to share how and why they’re organizing their congregations, regional bodies, and why their faith demands they take action in the new Poor People’s Campaign.
