Poor People’s Campaign In CA: The Right to Health and a Healthy Planet

June 4 at 12:30 pm - 5:00 pm

WEEK 4 of the Poor People’s Campaign: A National Call for Moral Revival. The Poor People’s Campaign is creating a Radical Revolution of Values by undertaking mass, nationally coordinated, civil disobedience, for six straight weeks.

12:30pm @ Rally and Direct Action launch at West Capitol steps

—————————————————————

50 years ago, Dr. MLK Jr. started the Poor People’s Campaign to spark a radical revolution of values across the nation. The campaign was intended to turn his dream, our dream, into a reality. Black, Brown, Yellow, Red, White, folks of every color where invited to band together across differences to build a Beloved Community across the nation. Weeks before the Campaign, King was assassinated. The original movement was unable to come to fruition.

The Poor People’s Campaign: A National Call for Moral Revival is picking up where the movement stopped in 1968. This is the fourth week in a SEASON OF NONVIOLENT MORAL DIRECT ACTION. America is in a crisis of values. The Poor People’s Campaign is taking nonviolent radical action to stand for the dignity of all people in our nation.

The 4th week of the Poor People’s Campaign: A National Call for Moral Revival is focusing on the Right to a Healthy Planet and Healthcare. To live in the wealthiest country in the history of the world and still have people dying for lack of healthcare is immoral. To not take action, at the brink of ecosystem collapse, is not a option.

Climate change and healthcare are not separate issues. Marginalized communities consistently are exposed to the greatest amount of pollution. Our health, our communities health, and the health of our planet are interconnected systems.

That’s the Poor People’s Campaign is building a movement that looks to address the entire American System. Nothing short of a radial revolution of values will bring us to universal healthcare and sustainable society.
