Leaders of the Poor to Host Teach-In At Greater Impact Worship Center And Announce March from Kensington to Washington DC of the Poor in June to Commemorate 50th Anniversary of King's Poor Peoples March
While many will come out tomorrow to volunteer, those of us who are poor and advocates of economic justice and human rights will raise the need for action! It is not enough to talk about how evil the Trump administration is or how Harrisburg is just sitting by while more families cannot afford to live in Philadelphia or our country.
Puerto Rico continues to see half of its families without water or electricity.
