Livestream Mass Viewing

This week the theme is Everybody's Got the Right to Live: Education, Jobs, Income and Housing. Virginia is a "right to work" state where many of our fellow Virginians struggle to make ends meet working low wage jobs with no job security. The Equal Rights Amendment was never ratified by Virginia and women in Virginia and throughout the nation are consistently paid less then men. When we look at race the pay disparity is even greater with African American women earning .64 and Hispanic women earning .53 to a man's dollar. In 2015 Virginia had nearly 18,000 homeless students; this is the 23rd highest number of homeless students in the nation.
Join Rev. Dr. Barber, faith leaders and impacted persons in a training lifting up the issue Everybody’s Got the Right to Live: Education, Jobs, Income and Housing.
Virginia is beginning to build its coordinating teams statewide, regional and local and we invite you to join us and help create this important campaign.
All over the country, in state capitals and Washington, D.C., policies that promote systemic racism, systemic poverty, the war economy, and ecological devastation are threatening our democracy and decaying our national morality.
We refuse to be silent as our elected leaders undermine access to the ballot box, destroy healthcare and the social safety net, and deny living wages—all while cutting taxes for the wealthy.
That is why people across the nation are coming together in the Poor People’s Campaign: A National Call for Moral Revival. This spring, from May 14th through June 23rd, clergy, disenfranchised people, and moral leaders from across this nation will engage in one of the largest waves of nonviolent moral fusion direct action that this nation has ever seen.
