Moral monday march on Raleigh
The Poor People’s Campaign: A National Call for Moral Revival is bringing a Moral Monday March on Raleigh to the steps of the state legislature on Jones Street. In North Carolina, we know the power of bringing together a fusion coalition of people around a common set of demands. The state legislature continues to drive its extremist agenda using voter suppression and gerrymandered maps. Their policies are disproportionately hurting the 4.6 million poor and low-income people of our state. And the US Congress has failed thus far to pass real support that would fill the gap. We are coming to Raleigh to put our state and federal elected officials that this system is killing ALL of us and we can’t… we won’t… we refuse to be silent anymore!
The Moral Monday March on Raleigh is part of a 10-stop mobilization tour toward the Mass Poor People’s and Low Wage Workers’ Assembly and Moral March on Washington and to the Polls on June 18, 2022.
The Moral Monday March on Raleigh will lift up the voices of impacted people from across NC as well as Virginia and South Carolina, joined by faith leaders, moral allies, and artists to demand that NC and this whole nation do MORE to live up its possibilities:
- MORE to fully address the interlocking injustices of systemic racism, poverty, ecological devastation and the denial of health care, militarism and the war economy and the false moral narrative of religious nationalism.
- MORE to change the narrative and build the power of those most impacted by these injustices.
- MORE to realize a Third Reconstruction agenda that can build this country from the bottom up and realize the nation we have yet to be.
- And we must do MORE – Mobilizing, Organizing, Registering and Educating people for a movement that votes – as we drive toward The Mass Poor People’s & Low-Wage Workers’ Assembly & Moral March on Washington and to the Polls on June 18, 2022, which will be a generationally-transformative declaration of the power of poor and low-wealth people and our moral allies.
It is NOT just a day of action. It is a declaration of an ongoing, committed moral movement to 1) Shift the moral narrative; 2) Build power; and 3) Make real policies to fully address poverty and low wealth from the bottom up.
