for those working with the external community, and really anyone interested in social justice issues, i recommend rsvp’ing for this event on wednesday night. the poor people’s campaign is a revival of the same campaign dr. martin luther king, jr began near the end of his life, which was a national call for moral revival in the fight against systemic racism, economic exploitation, and militarism.
i recommend this because the issues you are dealing with – violence, education, predatory lending, voter disenfranchisement, trauma & children’s health are all intertwined with many other issues that affect people stuck in poverty. this would be a good way to expose yourself to many people who both know about these issues and live with them daily.
the speakers are national co-chairs of the poor people’s campaign and more information can be found on the facebook event page.
