(this is a notice, not my work)
POST-ELECTION MESSAGE TO THE NATION
Repairers of the Breach
Poor People’s Campaign
more Than 72 million Americans have voted this year to repudiate extremism, racism, Trumpism that comes out of extremism.
If we address poverty and systemic racism, ecological devastation and the war economy, and the false moral narrative of religious nationalism, then that is the key to the healing of the nation.
According to an analysis from the Center for Disease Control, poor people are three times as likely to contract COVID-19 — not poor Black or poor white people, just poor people. Of course, poor Black people in percentage are more likely, and Latino and Indigenous people, but poor people are three times more likely to contract it. And when they do their families are not able to quarantine and skip work.
James Baldwin, taught us, we can have disagreement until your disagreement denies my right to exist. We can even have unity, unless in order to be united with you I have to agree that I don’t have the right to exist.

Ending poverty is the moral issue that can and must unite us alL
to win health care, living wages, equitable education. To turn our war economy into a peace economy.
250,000 people die every year because of poverty. People of all races and creeds and colors.
In a nation that boasts of being the wealthiest country in the world, we have more than half of children living in food insecure homes, and this pandemic has made this hunger, this poverty, this job loss, evictions, the suffering of children even worse.
Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.:
“A true revolution of values will soon cause us to question the fairness and justice of many of our past and present policies.On the one hand, we are called to play the Good Samaritan on life’s roadside, but that will just be an initial act. One day we must come to see that the whole Jericho Road must be transformed so that men and women will not constantly be beaten and robbed as they make their life, their journey on life’s highway. True compassion is more than flinging a coin to a beggar. It comes to see that an edifice which produces beggars needs restructuring.”
The Poor People’s Campaign: A National Call for Moral Revival will be organizing caravans on Monday, November 23rd, where we will continue to push for a just stimulus package, where we will continue to demand that our democracy matters. And that we, the people, have the power to organize, to provide justice for all, to establish that all needs are met. Democracy means every human being matters
We know when we lift from the bottom, when we organize, when we build power from the bottom, everybody, everybody, everybody can rise. And so we will do so, we will rise in these caravans on Monday, November 23rd, we will keep on rising and mobilizing and organizing. And we will move forward together, and not one step back.
Moral Monday will return on November 23 with mass nationwide caravans of remembrance and call-to-action for COVID relief, calling for Trump to stop delaying transition and immediate policy mandates
