From our UUA District:
A letter from the Poor People’s Campaign:
A National Call for Moral Revival

Dear Friends,

Trump and other extremists are again calling to “reopen the country.” Over the past week, many states have begun to ease restrictions on stay in place orders. These plans to reopen the economy show no regard for human life and are prioritizing the greed and profit of the few over the health of the majority. We cannot be silent as poor and marginalized people are disproportionately hurt by these policies.

This moment calls for all people of conscience to come together to call for moral noncooperation, to stay in place, stay alive and organize, organize, organize!

We need each of you to get involved in the 50 Days of Action leading up to the Mass Poor People’s Assembly and Moral March on Washington Digital Justice Gathering on June 20, 2020. 

Join the Everybody’s Got a Right to Live Cultural Day of Action on May 20th

The Virtual Art Build Toolkit includes an art-making guide, designs you can use, art-making how-to guides, songs, music tips, and more to participate in an Everybody’s Got a Right to Live Cultural Day of Action on May 20, 2020. 

We are asking people to sign up to make a Virtual Letter Sign Group Banner and we will need your photos by Sunday May 10th. See p.6-10 in the toolkit for more details and sign up to make a letter here!!  Also, see the toolkit for instructions to record your version of the Everybody’s Got a Right to Live song, video frames and Canva instructions (Songs are due Friday May 15th!)

We know that the coronavirus is awakening many to the political and economic crises that have long been buried under the surface: before COVID-19, nearly 700 people died everyday because of poverty and inequality in this country. A moral fusion movement is necessary to not just weather this storm, but to transform the nation!

Forward together, not one step back!
Rev. Dr. William Barber and Rev. Dr. Liz Theoharis
