Action of the Week!
The Poor People's Campaign was started by Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King 50 years ago. Guess what! It's being revived for our time by the Rev. Samual Barber in a new Poor People's Campaign. This campaign began in North Carolina, Dr. Barber's home state, and it has grown to include 25 states, including Oregon.
On February 5th, folks all across the country at state capitols, and in Washington, DC, will be highlighting the human impact of policies which promote systemic racism, poverty, the war economy, and environmental devastation.
The Action of the Week is to join the Oregon Poor People’s Campaign: A National Call for Moral Revival on Monday, February 5th at 10 am for a Unity News Conference in Salem on the Capitol Steps. This announcement launches the Poor People’s Campaign here in Oregon. The campaign will continue through the spring with a series of direct actions including civil disobedience.
The campaign will gather at 8:45 am at St. Mark Lutheran Church (790 Marion St NE, Salem, OR 97301) for breakfast and a short program before moving to the capitol steps (900 Court St NE, Salem, OR 97301) for the 10:00 am press conference. There is an optional light lunch and evaluation afterward at St. Mark Lutheran Church.
Join the Poor Peoples Campaign on February 5th!
