Join this new national moral movement 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.
Join others at Second and in Kansas City in this multiracial organizing effort to ensure freedom and justice for all people.
