“When he was assassinated, Martin Luther King Jr. was organizing with the poor and dispossessed from across the country a Poor People’s Campaign - led by the poor themselves - to challenge the “three evils” of poverty, racism, and militarism. Today, the crises he identified fifty years ago are worse. A new Poor People’s Campaign is in motion, carrying forward this critical work of building a movement with, not for, the poor -- to end poverty, systemic racism, militarism, and environmental destruction. Learn about this important, national movement, and how you can be part today.”
