Linking Systemic Racism and Poverty, May 21, 2018

New Jersey Poor People’s Campaign: A National Call for Moral Revival was launched on Monday, May 14.  The theme for the second week May 20-26) is Linking Systemic Racism and Poverty: Voting Rights, Immigration, Xenophobia, Islamophobia, and the Mistreatment of Indigenous Communities. RSVP here.

This is an important issue for anyone who cares that almost half—23 states—have adopted some form of voter suppression law since 2010; that deportations have increased tenfold between 1976 and 2015; or that Native Americans and Alaska Natives have the highest poverty rate of any racial group.

If you RSVP to Week Two’s rally, you will be sent a reminder email ahead of time and give you instructions on when and where to show up.
