The “largest mass assembly of poor people and low-wage workers in this nation’s history” will converge on Washington, D.C. on June 18.
The event is being organized by the Poor People’s Campaign and its partners.
That includes members and allies of organized labor, the civil rights movement, and religious communities from across the U.S.
The Rev. Dr. William J. Barber II, co-chair of the Poor People’s Campaign, said the “massive, nonviolent” march on the nation’s capital is not a singular event.
Barber said Friday “it is the declaration of an ongoing, committed, nonviolent, truth-telling, multiracial, interfaith moral movement.”
