Raleigh | Six Weeks of Action with the Poor People’s Campaign – Week 1

May 14 @ 2:00 PM - 3:00 PM

NC is one of over 30 states across the country and in Washington, DC heading to their state capitals on May 14th to force a serious national examination of the enmeshed evils of systemic racism, systemic poverty, ecological devastation and the war economy.

This is the first of six weeks of nonviolent moral fusion direct action across the country to show our elected leaders we will no longer allow attention violence to keep poor and disenfranchised people down.

Join us in Raleigh, NC at 2:00 p.m. for a Poor Peoples Campaign: A National Call for Moral Revival rally and demonstration. The first week’s theme is “Somebody’s Hurting Our People: Child poverty, Women, and People with Disabilities.”

If you are interested in engaging in nonviolent direct action as part of the demonstration, you must attend a pre-training at 11 am at 1801 Hillsborough St, Raleigh, NC.
