The June 18th, 2022 Mass Poor People’s and Low-Wage Workers’ Assembly and Moral March on Washington and to the Polls will be a generationally transformative and disruptive gathering of poor and low-wealth people, state leaders, faith communities, moral allies, unions, and partnering organizations. Physicians for Social Responsibility is a mobilizing partner for this important initiative, recognizing that the US government’s obsession with military spending is siphoning desperately-needed funds away from immediate concerns like economic and food insecurity, climate change, lack of access to health care or housing, racism, and so much more.
It is not just a day of action. It is a declaration of an ongoing, committed moral movement to shift the moral narrative, build power, and make real policies to fully address poverty and low wealth from the bottom up. Supporters are gathering from across the nation to demand this nation do more to live up to its possibilities:
- More to fully address the interlocking injustices of systemic racism, poverty, ecological devastation and the denial of health care, militarism and the war economy, and the false moral narrative of religious nationalism
- More to change the narrative and build the power of those most impacted by these injustices
- More to realize a Third Reconstruction agenda that can build this country from the bottom up and realize the nation we have yet to be
The Mass Poor People’s & Low-Wage Workers’ Assembly & Moral March on Washington and to the Polls on June 18, 2022 will be a generationally-transformative declaration of the power of poor and low-wealth people and their moral allies to say that this system is killing all of us and that we refuse to be silent anymore.
