Poor People’s Campaign: A National Call for a Moral Revival
Co-Chairs: Rev William Barber, (Repairers of the Breach); and Rev Liz Theoharis, (Kairos Center), have recently completed a 15 state tour. They included the New England Revival at Trinity Church in Boston MA, on October 19, 2017.
The call to action (now through June 2018) across the US is to:
1) End Racism,
2) End Poverty/Income Inequality,
3) End Militarism,
4) End Ecological Destruction.
At Trinity Church, Boston there were over 1000 diverse participants from the interfaith, worker-led, and low-income communities. These included SCNs Ann Whittaker, Anne Marie O’Shea and Tess Browne (co-coordinator of the interfaith prayer); and SCNA Eugenie Coakley ( statistician; and analysis of income inequality impact in Eastern Mass).
