It’s renewing its organizing and activity in uniting people across Minnesota to challenge the evils of systemic racism, poverty, the war economy, ecological devastation and the distorted moral narrative of religious nationalism  The Poor People’s Campaign is “rooted in a moral analysis based on our deepest religious and constitutional values that demand justice for all,” and is led by co-chairs Rev. William J Barber II (Repairers of the Breach/Moral Mondays) and Rev. Dr. Liz Theoharis (Kairos Center for Religions, Rights and Social Justice) and welcomes participation of people of all faiths.
