STATEWIDE TRUTH AND POVERTY BUS TOUR
Witnessing and Listening to the People
April 3rd – April 13th, California Poor People’s Campaign will travel across our state to highlight the REAL EMERGENCY!
“We have real socio-political and moral emergencies–they are the ongoing realities of systemic racism, systemic poverty, ecological devastation the war economy/militarism and the false moral narrative of religious nationalism,” said the Rev. Barber. “These are not are not left or right, but moral issues that must be addressed. Democrats haven’t done enough to make things better and Republicans do too much to make things worse.”
In a country with 140 million poor and low income residents, we declare a STATE OF EMERGENCY! We will shine a light on the TRUTH of the level of poverty this nation promotes, encourages, enforces and then criminalizes. We will be holding Public Hearings and site visits at 8 locations across California from April 3rd to April 13th. On the 8th, we are asking all locations to join us in Fresno for the Statewide Public Hearing.
