A Zoom webinar
Please join this national Poor People’s Campaign webinar, intended for all faith leaders as the PPC begins the We Must Do MORE Campaign (see below) leading up to November 3.
The 140 million poor and low-income people are the key to changing the political calculus in this country. That’s why the Poor People’s Campaign has launched a mass organizing project for the 100 days before the election: We Must Do MORE (Mobilizing, Organizing, Registering, Educating People for a Movement That Votes).
Over the next three months thousands of communities are coming together to build a new electorate of poor and low-income people of all races, religions, sexualities, and geographies to vote and organize for a moral agenda to transform our nation. We’re coming together from the coast to the heartland; from Appalachia to urban centers; in districts that are devastated by voter suppression and racist gerrymandering; and everyplace in between. We’re rolling out an expansive effort of base-building, voter registration and protection, town halls and forums, and nationally coordinated days of action.
The Poor People’s Campaign is non-partisan but deeply political. This fall, we’re demonstrating the power of poor and low-income people to shape the results and mandates of elections. For years we’ve demanded nothing less than a reconstruction of society around the needs of the poor and dispossessed. To make that possible now, we must bring the agenda of the poor front and center in this election cycle and beyond.
