WHY

  • There are 140 million poor and low-income people in the richest country in the history of the world. This global pandemic is exposing even more the already existing crisis of systemic racism, poverty, ecological devastation, the war economy and militarism, and the distorted moral narrative of religious nationalism.
  • We are gathering on June 20, 2020 to demonstrate the leadership of the poor and build power to enact a Moral Agenda for the nation.
  • If the rejected millions — those without health insurance, without living wages, without clean water, without voting protections — unite, we can move the moral and political imagination of this country and revive the heart of our democracy!

  • The Poor People’s Assembly & March on Washington: A Mass Digital Gathering is made up of people of all backgrounds, we are Black, Brown, White, Native, and Asian; we are old and young; we are people of faith and not of faith; we are people of all sexual orientations and gender identities; we are people of all abilities; we are led by poor people and we are a broad movement made up of those from all walks of life;; and we are from every corner of this nation

HOW
