Every few weeks I have been running something on the Poor People's Campaign. It is morally focused campaign against systemic racism, poverty, the war economy and ecological devastion. It is calling out the fact that our country's morality has been distorted by powerful interests.
The Poor People's Campaign is a big campaign with plans for 40 days of action starting on May 14th. It won't go away after that. Every year it intends to get larger and stronger. I urge you to sign up for their informational emails HERE. That way you can know what is going on.
The Action of the Week is to register for The Poor People's Campaign local Teach-In and Trainings. The campaign takes a disciplined approach. To participate in one of their direct actions, you must attend a training. (There will be options for those who've not been able to engage in training to fulfill support and witness roles as well.)
The Teach-In and Training dates continue throughout April and May all over Oregon.
