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. full article: https://www.alternet.org/environment/new-poor-peoples-campaign-rising-and-it-puts-climate-front-and-center -- Elan Shapiro Frog's Way B&B www.frogsway-bnb.com 607-592-8402 elanshapiro...@gmail.com Building Bridges Coalition Showing Up for Racial justice 211 Rachel Carson Way Ithaca, NY 14850 Things are not getting worse, they are getting uncovered.
