June 20, 2020: Virtual Mass Poor People’s Assembly

Join United Methodist Women and hundreds of organizations & grassroots movements as we unite from coast-to-coast for a virtual Mass Poor People’s Assembly and Moral March on Washington, DC.

The Poor People’s Campaign reminds us that “Everyone has a Right to Live.” The turmoil in our nation reveals long-term structural injustice and we cannot go back to an untenable “normal.”

United Methodist Women is a national faith member of the Poor People’s Campaign, A National Call for Moral Revival, and serves on their Prophetic Council of faith leaders. With the Poor People’s Campaign, they demand voting rights and a just economy, and encourage local individuals and groups to connect to the campaign for local faith and community responses.

Building on the legacy of the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King’s Poor People’s Campaign of 50 years ago, the campaign addresses the intersecting realities of poverty, racism, environmental degradation and militarism, including State violence in communities of color in the U.S. It integrates United Methodist Women priorities of Economic Inequality, Racial Justice and Ending Mass Incarceration, Climate Justice and Maternal Health.
