The Poor People’s Campaign (2018)

The Poor People’s Campaign was being organized by Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. and the Southern Christian Leadership Conference (SCLC) when Dr. King was murdered in Memphis while fighting for the rights of sanitation workers. King and SCLC believed that a living wage was a key to creating the “beloved community” and a basic human right.

Fifty years later, the fight continues. And I support it.
