Friends,

This pandemic and economic collapse, along with the recent wave of police brutality and racist murders, have forced this nation into an unprecedented season of crisis and action. Much continues to change day by day, but here is what we know: this emergency results from a deeper and much longer-term crisis, of systemic racism, inequality, and a society that ignores the needs of 140 million people who are poor or a $400 emergency away from being poor.

Over the last two years, the Poor People’s Campaign: A National Call for Moral Revival has worked to lay the groundwork for a broad movement that could unite poor and impacted communities across the country. People across the nation are joining the Campaign to confront the interlocking evils of systemic racism, poverty, climate change and ecological devastation, militarism and the war economy, and the distorted moral narrative of religious nationalism.

They are coming together to demand that the 140 million poor and low-income people in our nation — from every race, creed, gender, sexuality and place — are no longer ignored, dismissed or pushed to the margins of our political and social agenda.

350.org is proud to join the Poor People’s Campaign as a partner for the Mass Poor People’s Assembly and Moral March on Washington Digital Justice Gathering, broadcast on June 20, 2020 at 10 AM EST & 6 PM EST and on June 21 at 6 PM EST at June2020.org. Climate disasters and rapidly changing weather patterns have shown that those most impacted by climate change are Black, Indigenous, and communities of color who too often are also facing economic injustice. The link between climate justice, racial justice, and economic justice is more apparent than ever--that’s why I am encouraging you to register today for June 20, 2020.

The Mass Poor People's Assembly and Moral March on Washington will be an historic digital event. Across the internet and the airwaves we will drive the vision and agenda of our communities into the heart of the national narrative.

In this unprecedented moment, we must tell the truth about the dire failures of our political leaders. We must also demonstrate that it is the leadership emerging from our communities that is blazing a different path forward.

History teaches us that it is exactly in moments like these that a movement of the many is necessary to force the nation into action, and that the key to real and lasting change lies in our ability to come together in new and bold ways. Rise with us by registering today and join the broadcast on June 20 at 10 AM EST & 6 PM EST and on June 21 at 6 PM EST. Share the news through this social media toolkit.

On June 20, we cry power to the nation!
