oin the Poor People’s Campaign in week four of its series of national actions to spark a radical revolution of values.  Californians will meet in Sacramento to participate in a national day of nonviolent direct action for health care and against ecological devastation.  You don’t have to risk arrest to join this action.
 The Poor People’s Campaign is working for a Radical Revolution of Values, continuing the work Martin Luther King started in launching the Poor People’s Campaign 50 years ago.  The campaign was intended to turn his dream, our dream, into a reality.  Black, Brown, Yellow, Red, White, folks of every color where invited to band together across differences to build a Beloved Community across the nation. Weeks before the Campaign, King was assassinated.   The Poor People’s Campaign: A National Call for Moral Revival is picking up where the movement stopped in 1968.
In the 4th week of the Poor People’s Campaign: A National Call for Moral Revival, the campaign is  focusing on the Right to a Healthy Planet and Healthcare:
“To live in the wealthiest country in the history of the world and still have people dying for lack of healthcare is immoral. To not take action, as we stand on the brink of ecosystem collapse, is not a option.

“Climate change and healthcare are not separate issues. Marginalized communities consistently are exposed to the greatest amount of pollution. Our health, our communities health, and the health of our planet are interconnected systems.”
