Come join in — and be inspired by — the Poor People’s campaign for a Moral Agenda, when national Co-chairs Rev. William Barber and Rev. Liz Theoharis come to the Bay Area. Their national tour calls on us to do M.O.R.E. — Mobilizing, Organizing, Registering, Educating — to promote A Moral Agenda Based on Fundamental Human Rights, which demands deep changes to combat systemic racism, poverty and inequality, mass incarceration, ecological devastation, the war economy and militarism, and an “extremist religious and Christian nationalist agenda.”
The Bay Area stop on this tour will begin with “an Oakland community site visit to shine light on the struggles and stories of impacted people from the community, and provide a platform for them to share both the conditions they are facing and the solutions they believe in.”
Next will be a march in San Francisco, followed by a mass meeting to hear community members directly impacted by systemic racism, poverty, ecological devastation, militarism and the war economy, and the corrupt moral narrative, as well as from Rev. Barber and Rev. Theoharis.
