Moral Monday goes prime time at 8pm ET on July 26 with highlights from across the nation! The Poor People’s Campaign is joining our partners around the country to take the fight for democracy to the home offices of US Senators in at least 40 states, regardless of party.
The press conferences and demand deliveries will occur at different times in each state. Sign up to receive state-specific information: actionnetwork.org/events/taking-it-to-the-states-moral-mondays?source=direct_link&
Together we will create a nationwide chorus demanding to know, “Which Side Are You On? Democracy or Autocracy?” At each office, poor people, low-wage workers, faith leaders, advocates and others will gather outside the office to announce our demands for a Season of Nonviolent Moral Direct Action to Save Democracy and then a small group will enter the office and deliver the Mass Open Letter to the US Senate entitled “Which Side Are You On?” The Time is Now for Nonviolent Moral Direct Action.

.@POTUS Biden, I have no doubt you care and desire to do right, but, as a clergy person, let me say pastorally, when you say ending the filibuster will create chaos, that obscures the fact that the filibuster is facilitating chaos.
