Moral Monday

April 19 @ 3:00 pm - 4:30 pm

The national Poor People’s Campaign hosts special events on different topics every Monday to draw attention to some of the most pressing problems facing American workers and families today. We will update this page when this week’s Moral Monday focus is announced.

The Poor People’s Campaign and Repairers of the Breach have led peaceful protests and actions every Monday since 2013. Join the next Moral Monday on April 19th at 3 pm ET/12 pm PT as we continue to push Congress and the White House to enact the 14 Policy Priorities to Heal the Nation. As Rev. William Barber, NAACP North Carolina chair and leader of Moral Mondays, put it, “This is not about right or left; it’s about right or wrong.”

 

Forward together, not one step back!

 

Drawing on the unfinished work of the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.’s 1967/68 Poor People’s Campaign, which called for a “revolution of values,” Repairers of the Breach is working in partnership with the Kairos Center for Religions, Rights, and Social Justice, the Popular Education Project, and hundreds of local and national partners, to lead the Poor People’s Campaign: A National Call for Moral Revival. This multi-state movement has emerged from more than a decade of work by grassroots community and religious leaders, organizations, and movements fighting to end systemic racism, poverty, the war economy, environmental destruction, and other injustices.

“We declare that the moral public concerns of our faith traditions are how our society treats the poor, women, LGBTQ people, children, workers, immigrants, communities of color, and the sick. Our deepest moral traditions point to equal protection under the law, the desire for peace within and among nations, the dignity of all people, and the responsibility to care for our common home.”
