Religious Institute Endorses Poor People’s Campaign

The Religious Institute is proud to announce that it will endorsed the Poor People’s Campaign: A National Call for Moral Revival. The campaign is demanding major policy changes to address systemic racism, poverty, ecological devastation, the war economy, and our distorted moral narrative. The campaign’s agenda includes a repeal of the 2017 federal tax law, implementation of federal and state living wage laws, a path to universal single-payer health care, and clean water for all. The campaign is calling for the immediate restoration and expansion of the Voting Right Act, automatic voter registration at the age of 18, and an end to extreme, racist gerrymandering.

The Poor People’s Campaign is launching 40 days of moral action on Mother’s Day (May 13th). Focusing on a different theme over the course of six weeks, there will be opportunities to engage in non-violent direct action, public education, and music and the arts. These actions will take place in over 30 states and the District of Columbia and will culminate in a mass mobilization happening on June 23rd in Washington, D.C. During the 40 days of moral action, the Religious Institute and our partners will be creating a guide for faith communities to observe 40 days of action for LGBTQ and reproductive justice.
