In mid November, national, state and regional leaders from around the country gathered for three days of planning, learning and fellowship in Chicago. Illinois Poor People’s campaign was blessed to have this convening in our state and quite a few of us were able to attend.

The primary focus was on the Poor People’s Mass Assembly and Moral March on Washington, June 20, 2020 (we like long titles, don’t we?) and the work that will need to be done between now and then to get as many poor and dispossessed folks and their allies and moral witnesses to Washington D.C.

We will need a massive presence to shock and wake the heart of this nation to the plight of our 140 million poor and low wealth brothers and sisters.

We need all the help we can get. Can you join us?
