There are no breaking news at the moment

 

What would it take for America to become a moral society? We think it will take a revolution.

The day before he was assassinated, Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. delivered what is now known as the “I’ve Been to the Mountaintop” address to the Mason Temple in Memphis, Tennessee. He said,

Let us rise up tonight with a greater readiness. Let us stand with a greater determination. And let us move on in these powerful days, these days of challenge to make America what it ought to be.

Dr. King was preparing a Poor People’s Campaign that would bring together poor and working people of all races “to make America what it ought to be.” But, his life was stolen by a system of capitalism and white supremacy. He preached of a revolution of values to challenge the triple evils of militarism, materialism, and racism.

Dr. King’s prophetic call for a multiracial Poor People’s Campaign to transform America is as urgent today as the day he was killed by a white supremacist 50 years ago.

Our Revolution is joining with hundreds of other groups in supporting the Poor People’s Campaign: A National Call for a Moral Revival to continue the call Rev. King made 50 years ago. Rev. Dr. William Barber and co-chair Rev. Dr. Liz Theoharris launched the campaign this year to unleash a moral revival in America and challenge the corrupt and racist system that ensnares the American people.

Will you join the moral revolution to transform America?

America has yet to answer the questions Dr. King was asking 50 years ago: “Can we all be part of a community that provides us dignity and belonging?”

The Poor People’s Campaign will bring together millions of Americans who believe it’s time for us to build an America that truly belongs to all who call it home.

All over the country starting this May in state capitols and Washington, D.C., we will be protesting the systemic racism, poverty, war economy, and ecological devastation that threaten our democracy. If America is going to be great, we must first make it good.

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.

In the face of injustice and needless suffering, we are heeding Rev. King’s call to raise a nonviolent army. The American people will come together to confront the corrupt oligarchs who divide us with racism and oppress us to serve their greed.

Are you ready to join the moral revolution?

The time to act is now. We need you to join our movement and show politicians that if they do not enact a moral and just agenda, we will.

We are organizing one of the largest waves of nonviolent direct action and civil disobedience in U.S. history. Will you join us? Please sign up now.

The soul of our nation is at stake.

In solidarity,

Nina Turner
President
Our Revolution

P.S. Consider checking out Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.’s book Where Do We Go from Here: Chaos or Community? It is one of my favorites.
