November Meeting: The Poor People’s Campaign Themes

Our Rio Texas MFSA Zoom meeting on Thursday, November 11 will focus on the Poor People’s Campaign, and will be led by Pat Stewart.

In 2018, the Poor People’s Campaign: A National Call for Moral Revival released its Poor People’s Moral Agenda & Declaration of Fundamental Rights.  Its demands address systemic racism, poverty, ecological devastation, militarism, and a distorted moral narrative that keeps these systemic injustices intact.  The connections between these five themes are why we must continue to build power among the 140 million poor & dispossessed of this nation.  Fight poverty, not the poor.

Join us at the Rio Texas MFSA meeting to discuss these five themes.  We will also view a short video on William Barber, one of the founders of the Poor People’s Campaign.  This will be followed by an exchange of ideas on the topic of what being poor means in Texas.

The meeting will begin at 7:00 pm.  Please join us!
