On July 26, the Poor People’s Campaign will join partners around the nation 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 here and you will receive state-specific information when it becomes available.
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.
EVERYONE is invited to join us at 8pm ET / 5pm PT at action.poorpeoplescampaign.org or fb.com/anewppc for a prime time Moral Monday to recap the dozens of actions across the nation that day.
Here are some of the partners joining so far, with more joining every day!
