Poor People's Campaign Update


Over the past month, CWAers in more than 30 states have engaged in actions as part of the renewal of the Poor People's Campaign to mobilize against the structures that are supporting economic injustice and undermining our democracy. Advocates and supporters of the Poor People's Campaign converged from all around the country in Washington, D.C., (top two photos) on June 23 for a mass rally and global day of solidarity. CWAers also joined a rally in Columbus, Ohio. Speaking at the Washington, D.C., rally were CWA District 6 Vice President Claude Cummings, Jr., who heads CWA's Human Rights Program, and CWA Local 2222 member from AT&T Mobility, Sharita Bryant.
