About the event
Now is the time to center the needs of those impacted by poverty and demand a policy agenda that benefits everybody. We need a policy agenda that addresses the lives, struggles, agency and insights of the 8.6 million poor and low-income New Yorkers and our allies. We need a policy agenda that embodies a politics of justice and truth that can defeat the politics of death, heal the nation and move us closer to genuine democracy.
To that end, we will gather for a Mass Meeting, carrying forward the unfinished work of Dr. King’s original Poor People’s Campaign, and building a fusion movement to cut across the historic lines of division that have kept our people in poverty. This event will feature testimonies from poor and dispossessed leaders directly impacted by the interlocking oppressions of systemic racism, poverty, militarism and the war economy, and ecological devastation.
