Members of the public are invited to learn more about the Poor People’s Campaign, A National Call for a Moral Revival and how it will unfold in Oregon. A local orientation takes place 6:30 p.m., Thursday, March 1 at Saint Mark’s Lutheran Church, 790 Marion St. in Salem.

The Poor People’s Campaign: A National Call for Moral Revival is bringing together people from across the country to build a broad and deep national movement, led by the poor, clergy and moral agents, to demand change.

The March 1 orientation will give participants a chance to hear from the Oregon Poor Peoples Campaign organizers in Portland, and join the movement.

We’ll share some food at 6 p.m. before the meeting begins. Bring something for the potluck, if you can.  RSVP to Mbeemer@wraphome.org to attend, and go to poorpeoplescampaign.org to get signed up for the national campaign.

The Poor People’s Campaign: A National Call for Moral Revival has emerged from more than a decade of work by various movements fighting to end systemic racism, poverty, militarism, environmental destruction & related injustices. It stems from Martin Luther King Jr.’s Poor Peoples Campaign he fostered more than 50 years ago.
