Greetings from the Indiana Poor People’s Campaign: A National Call for Moral Revival!
Fifty years ago today, Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King announced the start of the original Poor People’s Campaign, which he said must unite the poor and dispossessed across lines of division to become a “new and unsettling force in our complacent national life.”Today, Monday, December 4, leaders of the new Poor People’s Campaign: A National Call for Moral Revival will gather in Washington D.C., not to commemorate King’s work but to continue it. We will officially announce the launch of the Campaign, which is already mobilizing toward 40 days of massive, coordinated, nonviolent direct action across the country this spring.You are one of the hundreds of Hoosiers who have been part of this campaign – and we’re just getting started!One of the tenets of the Poor People’s Campaign: A National Call for Moral Revival is that change comes from the bottom up, not the top down. We are tasked with organizing in our own communities and connecting across the state to build a powerful and diverse movement – led by the poor, marginalized and moral agents and reflecting the great moral teachings.There is a role for each of us, and it’s time to get to work. Here are some ways to get engaged right away:
- Like, share and follow the Indiana Poor People’s Campaign Facebook page
