In 2018, thousands of poor and working people in New York State and throughout the country joined together in collective action to challenge the evils of systemic racism, poverty, militarism, and ecological devastation, in the launch of the new Poor People’s Campaign: A National Call for Moral Revival.

Rev. Dr. Liz Theoharis and Willie Baptist have deep backgrounds in community, anti-poverty, and labor organizing, and bring to this work years of experience and insight into not only the moral necessity of confronting these crises, but the needed vision, analysis, and strategy to build what Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. called “A New and Unsettling Force” of the poor and dispossessed.

Join them for an evening of conversation around the history, vision, and strategy of what it will take to continue building this new and unsettling force.
