profits over the future of humanity.

of 1967 speeches
<https://www.scribd.com/doc/134362247/Martin-Luther-King-Jr-The-Three-Evils-of-Society-1967>,
Martin Luther King famously explained how the "three evils" of racism,
poverty, and war were intertwined. That same year, King and other visionary
leaders started a Poor People’s Campaign to expose the moral crisis of
poverty in the richest country in the world and to confront those three
evils.

Today, visionary leaders in movements for social and economic justice have
launched a new Poor People’s Campaign <https://poorpeoplescampaign.org/>,
to combat the same moral crisis in a different age. They'll be launching
marches, rallies, and campaigns of civil disobedience in over 30 states
this spring.

Things are not getting worse, they are getting uncovered. We must each hold
each other tight and continue to pull back the veil.
