The Poor People’s Campaign (PPC) is launching a 40-day, 41-state effort to unite the poor and disenfranchised and to challenge the interconnected evils of systemic racism, poverty, the war economy and ecological devastation. We believe a moral revival is necessary to save the heart and soul of our democracy.   There will be Five Monday actions at the Statehouse in Boston each with a different theme.   Monday actions will begin at 2 p.m. with a rally followed by optional non-violent direct action.
