2020 Presidential Election, Event Notes , ,
AUGUST END OF MONTH WEEKEND OF ACTION The shooting of Jacob Blake in Kenosha shook us all. Then we learned that he is paralyzed. The truth is, nothing will be done on racism or police brutality by an AG who uses law enforcement to violently clear a park for a photo op, or by a president who ended consent decrees early in his presidency. It is our responsibility on the ground right now, to make sure we have enough volunteers to contact every voter on the side of justice and help them create a plan to vote. This is also…

2019 Poor People’s Campaign National Congress

2019 Poor People’s Campaign National Congress

Event Notes , , , , , , , ,
The 2019 Poor People’s Campaign’s (PPC) national congress kicked off Monday, June 17th at Howard and Trinity Universities in Washington D.C. The Campaign emphasizes and protects its non-partisanship; it’s fitting, therefore, that alumni include, liberal Justice Thurgood Marshall and conservative Republican Senator John Kornyn.  It is, however, most definitely NOT apolitical. Monday’s opening day included substantive appearances from nine Presidential candidates including Bernie Sanders, Kamala Harris, Elizabeth Warren and Joe Biden.  While the assemblage was directed, repeatedly to applaud only the questioners and NOT the candidates, the energy of the audience was most definitely at peaks during the appearances of…
