CWAers from Alabama and Georgia joined the Poor People's Campaign: A National Call for Moral Revival – We Must Do M.O.R.E. Tour in Alabama to fight against inequality last weekend. Members marched across the Edmund Pettus Bridge to commemorate Selma's Bloody Sunday March, a 1965 protest during which hundreds of nonviolent participants were confronted and brutally attacked for fighting for the right to vote. The Bloody Sunday March commemoration was especially powerful for CWA members as they work to fight against strict voter ID requirements and voter suppression legislation aimed to silence the voices of minority communities.
Mass meetings in Mobile and Birmingham brought faith leaders, advocates, and labor activists together to organize, strategize, and build power to fight back against systems that support economic injustice.
The Poor People's Campaign: A National Call for Moral Revival - We Must Do M.O.R.E. Tour will meet in Washington, D.C., on June 20, 2020, for a national assembly of over 40 states and thousands of moral activists and advocates. Find a Poor People's Campaign chapter in your state to join the fight. Contact the CWA Human Rights Department (firstname.lastname@example.org) for more information!
