TKC SUNDAY MUST SEE!!! FAIR WAGE ACTIVISTS ORGANIZE POOR PEOPLE'S KANSAS CITY CAMPAIGN KICK-OFF!!!
Whilst Kansas City newsies are still stuck in a rut over a Kansas City street rename debate that Mayor Sly has seemingly outsmarted . . . As always, our blog community stays one step ahead of the game and offers FIRST LOOK at tomorrow's news cycle.
To wit . . .
KANSAS CITY ACTIVISTS ARE FURIOUSLY ORGANIZING FOR THE MONDAY MORNING LOCAL KICK-OFF OF THE POOR PEOPLE'S CAMPAIGN!!!
The nationwide call to action with a fierce faction from Kansas City offers historical tribute to the legacy of MLK and his final crusade.
The Last March of Martin Luther King Jr. - In the months leading up to his assassination, King’s greatest focus was on poverty and economic injustice.
Even better, here's a look at tomorrow's 50th anniversary tribute to the ongoing movement:
Get Ready for the Poor People’s Campaign
And so, because our blog community leads the local news cycle . . . Here's a Sunday glimpse at talking points to start the week.
Poor People's Campaign: Season of Non-Violent Direct Action Launch
6 AM - Send off march in KCMO - 3230 Troost Ave
10 AM - Mobilize for Jefferson City Action - 327 E Capitol Ave Jeff City, MO
11:30 AM - March to State Capitol
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!
