Join the Poor People’s Campaign: A National Call for Moral Revival in Flint or the 17th stop of the We Must Do MORE National Tour as we Mobilize, Organize, Register and Educate.

The tour stop in Michigan will culminate with a Moral Monday March and Mass Meeting on Monday, April 6, 2020. This will follow a weekend of events in Flint including:

A community site visit to shine light on the struggles and stories of impacted people from the community and provide a platform for them to share both the conditions they are facing and the solutions they believe in.

A Community Canvass to register people for the movement that votes.

A Free film screening of the Aretha Franklin film, Amazing Grace.

At the Moral Monday, we will hear from people directly impacted by systemic racism, poverty, ecological devastation, militarism and the war economy, and the corrupt moral narrative. We will also hear from Rev. Barber and Rev. Theoharis, Co-Chairs of the Poor People’s Campaign: A National Call for Moral Revival.

The Poor People’s Campaign: A National Call for Moral Revival is organizing a 25-state We Must Do MORE national tour from September 2019 to May 2020. This tour will lead into the Mass Poor People’s Assembly & Moral March on Washington, where thousands of poor people and moral agents will gather at the nation’s capitol on June 20, 2020 to demonstrate their power.

We will demand the implementation of our Moral Agenda and call all people of conscience to engage in deeply moral civic engagement and voting that cares about poor and low-wealth people, the sick, immigrants, workers, the environment, people with disabilities, first nations, the LGBTQ community, and peace over war.
