We will talking about the planning and organizing of the March for Our Lives 2018 on June 2 to 12.
On June 2nd, poor families from across the U.S and abroad will gather in the Kensington neighborhood of Philadelphia, the poorest district in Pennsylvania, to march to Washington D.C. in the March for Our Lives.
This march will mark the 50th anniversary of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.’s Poor People’s Campaign and Resurrection City erected in 1968 on the National Mall. The march will begin on June 2nd from the Kensington neighborhood of Philadelphia and end on June 12th at the National Mall in Washington, D.C.
The webinar will not just focus on logistic information related to the March, but also the strategic significance of the poor to continue to organize and speak for ourselves – not just domestically but internationally – especially at a time when the the lived reality of the poor is increasingly erased by the media.
Presenters include Cheri Honkala, Galen Tyler, and Tara Colon – members of the Poor People’s Economic Human Rights Campaign who are currently living below the poverty line, formerly homeless, and raising children with disabilities.
