The Orange County Peace Coalition, friends of Pace e Bene and Campaign Nonviolence, are organizing an event on Dec 4th. If you are in the area, consider joining them!
On December 4, 2017, there will be a national launch for the Poor People’s Campaign (PPC). People from various cities will come together to show their support and learn more about how to get involved in breaking the cycle and to end poverty. As many of us have come to realize, poverty is one issue in which all peace and justice groups can converge. Let’s start locally~
Get Involved: Ask your organization to join allies with the Orange County Peace Coalition at the Orange Circle/Plaza to kick-off the Poor People’s Campaign in OC and stand in solidarity with a National Call for Moral Revival on Monday, December 4th in Washington DC. If you are an individual looking to be a part of a group, we would love for you to join us.
What to Expect: We will start with a short rally around the Traffic Circle and then meet-up after at the fountain to answer questions about the campaign and determine what we can do in OC. This is a great time to sign the pledge, network and become involved in restoring humanity. Bring a sign or banner to represent your group and/or cause.
Rally Time: 11AM-1PM
Meeting Place: Fountain at the Orange Circle/Plaza
Parking: Free public parking around the Circle & back behind the businesses.
If you are unable to attend the rally but want to receive information on the next steps, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
About Poor People’s Campaign: PPC was created on December 4, 1967, by the Southern Christian Leadership Conference (SCLC), and its leader, Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., to address the impact of poverty on the lives of millions of Americans. The campaign fell by the wayside when Dr. Martin Luther King was assassinated on April 4, 1968 and has been revived by Reverend William Barber.
A Facebook group page has been created for individuals and groups to have a sounding board to share ideas while networking. You may join the group by going to: https://www.facebook.com/groups/1498070076936501/?source=create_flowGet Directions via Google Maps
