Poor People’s Campaign Zoom legislative event

March 15 @ 9:00 am - 9:30 am

Monday, March 15, 2021, 9-9:30 am, on Zoom.  Moral Monday and Poor People’s Campaign Legislative Demand Deliveries.  100 people wanted for a “Demands Delivery Zoom Rally”

Join the Washington Poor People’s Campaign: A National Call for a Moral Revival as we deliver our demands to our Governor and State Representatives in concert with 42 other states. This strategy of coordinated actions will build and show our power as a movement, bring more media attention to our work, build off the energy of other state actions and remind us that we  are not alone!  We are a fusion movement!

Location: This will be a combination Zoom and on-site action. We are inviting you to join the action on Zoom while a small number of safely gathered people in Olympia deliver our demands in person.  We will also be livestreaming this meeting on Facebook.  Photos of this action will be sent to National to be included in a 3pm (ET) press conference highlighting actions in all 43 states.

Instructions:  Bring a handmade sign with the demand issue you care most about or print out while the demands are being posted in Olympia.  We will all hold up our demands on Zoom.

Simultaneously, while the demands are being delivered at the State Capitol, we will all be delivering them by calling or emailing our representatives.

People from all across our state, via Zoom, will be standing united with folks across the country as they too deliver the Poor People’s Campaign 14 Policy Priorities to legislative leaders and governor of their states. Together we will bring attention to the impact of policies that promote systemic racism, poverty and inequality, the war economy and militarism, environmental devastation, and the corrupt moral narrative.
