Join Poor People’s Campaign Rally in Washington, D.C., on June 29!

NLIHC urges partners and members of our network to join other advocates from across the country at the “Mass Poor People’s and Low-Wage Workers’ Assembly and Moral March on Washington D.C. and to the Polls” on June 29 and help mobilize impacted poor and low-wage workers and their allies to attend.

The mass assembly and moral march will be led by the Poor People’s Campaign: A National Call for Moral Revival. As an official mobilizing partner of the campaign, NLIHC is working to mobilize members of our network to join this effort. The gathering will take place on Saturday, June 29, at 10 am ET, at 3rd & Pennsylvania Ave, NW Washington D.C.

The Poor People’s Campaign was founded in 1967 by Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., who wanted to create a movement that fought for economic security and addressed poverty by focusing on the intersections of race and class. Fifty years after Dr. King’s assassination, the unfinished work of the campaign was restarted by community leaders and advocates – including NLIHC – who are continuing the fight to unite low-income people of every race, color, creed, and sexuality.

RSVP today to join us on June 29 in the nation’s capital for the “Mass Poor People’s & Low-Wage Workers’ Assembly & Moral March on Washington D.C. & to the Polls”!
