TKC MUST SEE!!! KANSAS CITY FAIR WAGE ACTIVISTS START SEASON OF PROTEST!!!
It's Spring again and that means more social justice protest on local streets in addition to increased demands for a $15-minimum wage in Kansas City that was passed but prevented by the Missouri General Assembly in Jeff City.
Here's the word . . .
RIGHT NOW: #KansasCity is holding ANOTHER successful non-violent civil disobedience training to join together with the #PoorPeoplesCampaign across #America and demonstrate WHY WE CAN'T WAIT!
Poverty. Racism. Militarism. These are daily emergencies that are tearing our communities and our nation apart. We can't wait for economic #justice. We can't wait for racial #equality. We can't wait for #peace. WE ARE DEMANDING IT NOW!
And all of that was simply a prelude to an upcoming series of protests on Kansas City streets:
PPC Season of Non-Violent Direct Action Launch
"The season of non-violent direct action is upon us. Across America, the Poor People’s Campaign is wielding collective action in May and June to abolish the “Triple Evils” of racism, economic exploitation, and militarism. We launch our season of non-violence on May 14 in Jefferson City and state capitols across America to target the epicenters of the country’s attacks on democracy and equality.
"Join us at 6am as we march in KC and send off our multi-racial movement to Jefferson City. Black, white, and brown are coming together to meet the attacks on all Americans -- the poor, unions, workers, immigrants and refugees, the LGBTQ community, women, and low wage workers. At 12pm in Jefferson City, join the mass marches, rallies, and non-violent moral direct that will make history across the country.
"We launch our Poor People’s Campaign on May 14th to win the battle for America to be what it ought to be: A place where “opportunity is real, and life is free,” and “equality is in the air we breathe!” as Langston Hughes so beautifully said. The time is now!"
