Poor People's Campaign

The Poor People’s Campaign: A National Call for Moral Revival is uniting people in Washington, D.C. to challenge the evils of systemic racism, poverty, the war economy, ecological devastation and the nation’s distorted morality of religious nationalism. The Poor People’s Campaign is non-partisan but deeply political.

On June 29th here in Washington DC, The Poor People’s Campaign: A National Call for Moral Revival is hosting a historic gathering of poor people, workers, and their allies to demand that candidates for public office in 2024 support a moral public policy agenda that includes living wages, voting rights, and other essential policies that lift from the bottom.

Join us to spread the word by:

  • Canvassing – distributing flyers in DC neighborhoods and at community events 
  • Making banners and posters at an Artbuild
  • Writing a letter to the editor 
  • Making phone calls
  • Other activities to get the word out about the Assembly

Sign up here to volunteer to help get ready for June 29th.

There are many canvasses between now and June 29th. See the list and sign up here.

Our Votes are our Demands.

Between 2018-2020, 280,000 people were living in poverty or just one emergency away from economic ruin in Washington DC, accounting for 39.6% of the population.  

Poverty was the fourth leading cause of death in the United States, claiming
more lives than homicide, gun violence, diabetes or obesity. Long-term poverty was
responsible for 295,000 deaths a year – or over 800 deaths a day.

We must join forces and make our voices heard, as impacted folks & advocates, to push for economic justice in this city and this country.
