Dear Friends,
Last month, in honor of the International Day of Peace, we shared from one of the talks from the Poor People’s Campaign, A National Call for Moral Revival digital gathering. (If you have not had a chance to view the whole program, we highly recommend it. It is very special. You can find it here: https://www.june2020.org/) This month we would like to share from another talk to celebrate the Voice of Women in our continuing monthly commemoration of the International Women’s Day.

“For Far Too Long”
From an Address from the Poor People’s Campaign,

“For far too long the poor, immigrants, victims of racist police violence, and young people have been blamed for all of societies’ problems. For too long we have been divided by race and immigration status, religion, issue era, sexuality, and gender. For far too long we have been fed the lie of scarcity when we live in a world of abundance, where the only scarcity we have is the political  will to establish justice, promote the general welfare, secure the blessings of liberty and justice for absolutely all. For far too long the false narrative of religious nationalism has blessed what is wrong and condemned what is right in the eyes of God.”
