On Saturday, June 20, 2020 : A Virtual March on Washington DC For the Voices of the Poor.
Whether it’s a pandemic or racial segregation and bias, the poor people are the first hit when resources are getting low. The first to be hated, and left to manage on their own. Therefore the first to die.
An issue that is exaccerbated when the poor people are those who are BIPOC, LGBTQ, or women (esp single parents).
This Saturday, a virtual march on Washington DC has been organized. Below are the contacts and the site. It seems to be primarily for US citizens, but maybe there is a way for people from other countries to let their voices support those who “attend”? At least let the govt know people are watching from outside the country.
If you want to be more than a ranter on your own platform, find a way to support those people who are doing something. Even if it’s just to let people know! (#passiton!)
….. Join up then
Watch the livestream at 10am and 6pm EST on June 20th, and again at 6pm on June 21st.
