POOR PEOPLE'S CAMPAIGN OF WNY (PPC WNY)
Fifty years ago Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. and supporters launched the Poor People’s Campaign to fight against systemic racism, poverty and militarism.
In 2018, The Poor People’s Campaign: A National Call for Moral Revival,
was rekindled by Rev. Dr. William Barber and Rev. Dr. Liz Theoharis.
We are continuing MLK’s work and bringing people together for a moral movement to
challenge the evils of systemic racism, poverty, violence/militarism,
ecological devastation, and the nation’s distorted morality.
To shift the currently distorted narrative we look to engaging the leadership
of those impacted, the clergy, and other community supporters.
The Poor People's Campaign of Western New York is currently focused on
health care for all, voter registration and education, and bail reform.
