From the Kairos Center (https://kairoscenter.org/):
Our nation needs a moral revival.
Systemic racism. Poverty. A war economy. Ecological destruction. A distorted national morality. These enmeshed evils are tearing apart the country’s social fabric.
That’s why today, poor and disenfranchised people, clergy and moral leaders nationwide are launching the Poor People’s Campaign: A National Call for Moral Revival. Will you join us at https://poorpeoplescampaign.org/?
Fifty years ago today, Dr. Martin Luther King and others called for the original Poor People’s Campaign to foster a revolution of values in America. But that vision was tragically cut short.
With extremists who stand against voting rights, living wages, health care and immigration reform gaining even more influence today in Washington and in statehouses across the country, the need for a new moral movement in the U.S. is more urgent than ever.
Yesterday we announced our movement will unite tens of thousands of people across the country to engage in direct action at statehouses and the U.S. Capitol next spring – a six-week protest highlighted by one of the largest waves of civil disobedience in U.S. history.
Please add your name if you’re ready to join our movement to transform the political, economic and moral structures of the country.
Together, we can make this country live up to its ideals.
P.S. Our movement is uniting people of every race, sex, creed, sexuality and party behind a common moral agenda. Add your name and join our movement for a moral revival in this country.
