The Poor People’s Campaign: A Call for Moral Revival focuses its next Moral Monday on the fight for environmental justice, economic justice and health care for all; we continue to demand a just COVID relief bill and living wages for all workers.
From the sacred lands of Oak Flat in Arizona, threatened by a sale to an international mining company, to the poisoned air and water in Cancer Alley in Louisiana and hunger strikers resisting the pollution of children in Illinois and states in between, we will fight for the rights of people to their clean air, water, land and the right to survive and thrive.
Join us this Moral Monday at 3pm ET / 12pm PT! We’ll be streaming live from our nationwide online broadcast to hear from folks who know what it’s like to try to get by on minimum wage in America, and who have borne the pain of environmental injustice, a lack of adequate healthcare, and the pandemic firsthand.
**This event will be ASL interpreted and open captioned.**
For three weeks of Moral Mondays we’ve fought for $15/hour minimum wage, the elimination of the sub-minimum wage for tipped workers, union rights for all and a full and just COVID relief. As we have seen over the past 11 months, these issues are deeply connected. The crisis of poverty and low wages is directly connected to the injustices in our healthcare system. We know that 87 million people were uninsured or underinsured before the pandemic and millions have lost their healthcare in the worst public health crisis in a century. In the richest nation in history, there is no excuse for denying the human rights of living wages, an adequate standard of living and quality health care.
