Honoring Dr. King’s Legacy, Reviving the Poor People’s Campaign

January 14 @ 4:30 pm - 6:30 pm

Start 2018 off right & Join the Movement! Make the commitment to honor Dr. Martin Luther King’s legacy. Join us this Sunday (1/14/18) as we officially launch the Poor People’s Campaign in New Mexico.
The event will feature speakers, local music and more! Bring your friends and your family. Everyone is invited to attend as the issues being addressed affect us all.
In 2017 over 1200 New Mexican’s marched and gathered to support this campaign. It was important then and it is important now.
Let’s do this together!

More Info on the Poor People’s Campaign:
The Revival of the Poor People’s Campaign: A National Call for Moral Revival is urgently and morally mandated during this time of unprecedented inequities and economic repression.
This year marks both the 91st birthday of Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. as well as the 50th year of his death.
Rev. Dr. King lived and died championing the cause of justice for all and striving to bring good news of a brighter day for the poor and vulnerable people of the world.
We are holding this national revival gathering to call on the nation to enlist in the Poor People’s Campaign: A National Call for Moral Revival. We call on all people of moral conscience to join us in 40 days of direct action in over half the states to challenge extremism in state and national politics.
