The Poor People’s Campaign is back! This spring, from the Monday after Mother’s Day to June 21, the 50th anniversary of the killing of Goodman, Schwerner, and Cheney, there will be a multi-religious, multiracial effort to overcome poverty, racism, the war economy, ecological devastation, and to build unity across lines of division in America. The Campaign is led by the Rev. William Barber II, head of Repairers of the Breach and the leader of the Moral Monday’s movement, now called the Poor People’s Campaign: A National Call for Moral Revival. To learn what will be happening in Minnesota and how you and your community can be involved, we invite you to an informational program at St. Mark’s Episcopal Cathedral on Loring Park across from the Walker Art Gallery on Thursday, May 3, 11:30 am to 1:00 pm. There is parking in the Cathedral parking lot. Lunch will not be served, but coffee, tea, water, and cookies and bars will be available, bag lunches welcome. Please pass this information on to colleagues, your community, and your friends. It’s time to do all we can to overcome poverty and injustice in America. Open to all interested persons. Reservation is not required.
