Legislative and Policy Priorities of the Poor People’s Campaign: A National Call for Moral Revival


From Alaska to Arkansas, the Carolinas to California, Mississippi to Maine, Kansas to Kentucky, the Bronx to the Border, Appalachian hollers to Apache sacred lands, people are coming together to organize their moral outrage against systemic racism, poverty, ecological devastation and militarism into a powerful moral fusion movement.

A society sick with these injustices and infirm with the distorted narrative of Christian nationalism needs a moral voice, rooted in our deepest Constitutional and moral values, to remind us of who we are and who we must be.

The Poor People’s Moral Justice Jubilee Policy Platform is organized into five sections:

Part I. Establish Justice and End Systemic Racism: The Right to Democracy and Equal Protection Under the Law
Part II. Promote the General Welfare: The Right to Welfare and an Adequate Standard of Living
Part III. Ensure Domestic Tranquility: The Right to Work with Dignity
Part IV. Secure the Blessings of Liberty: The Right to Health and A Healthy Environment
Part V. Provide for the Common Defense: Reprioritizing our Resources
