Poor People's Campaign + Sacramento Week 6

Yesterday we began the fifth week of the birthing of the California Poor People's Campaign: A National Call for Moral Revival. We had a full day of action led by hundreds of low-wage workers, the houseless, tenants, union members, and folks from every walk of life. From delivering an eviction notice to the California Association of Realtors, to occupying the Senate gallery, to filling the halls of the capitol with song, we were a new unsettling force felt in Sacramento and across our state.
Simultaneously across the nation, once again, thousands of others also gathered at their state capitals, including in Washington D.C, where Rev. Dr. Liz Theoharis and 8 other faith leaders were arrested for praying outside of the Supreme Court. Their prayers come on the heels of the Supreme Court's ruling to protect Ohio's newly passed voter suppression laws.
As dozens were arrested around the country for standing up for affordable housing, livable wages, guaranteed annual income, and education, we are determined to keep organizing, to keep building, and to keep walking forward towards a radical revolution of values across this nation. 
Watch a montage from yesterday's actions in Sacramento:
Now it is time to get ready for our last gathering in Sacramento as part of the 40 days of Nonviolent Moral Fusion Direct Action launching the Poor People's Campaign. Will you join us as we come together to show up in the full power of this growing fusion movement?
As we prepare for our final day of action in Sacramento, we are also looking ahead to the national gathering that will be taking place in Washington D.C on June 23rd. Will you join the thousands of people from across the country coming together to complete the launch of our movement with a mass rally?

Thank you for standing with us. Forward together, not one step back,
