Emilee Shell to Formerly Incarcerated and Justice-Impacted Leaders: Join Us in D.C. on June 29!

June 17, 2024

By Emilee Shell (Leading with Conviction™ 2023):

The Poor People’s Campaign: A National Call for Moral Revival is hosting a historic gathering of poor people, workers, and their allies to demand that candidates for public office in 2024 support a moral public policy 17-point agenda that includes living wages, voting rights, and other essential policies that lift from the bottom. The June 29th Mass Poor People’s & Low-Wage Workers’ Assembly and Moral March on Washington D.C. & to the Polls will launch outreach to 15 million poor and low-wage infrequent voters ahead of the 2024 U.S. elections and beyond.

Your presence is not only welcomed but crucial …

The Poor People’s Campaign is a non-partisan moral fusion movement dedicated to addressing the interlocking injustices of systemic racism, poverty, ecological devastation, and the war economy, and this march will be a significant demonstration of solidarity and a call for justice. As justice-impacted individuals, your presence is not only welcomed but crucial in amplifying the voices that demand change and equity in our society. Your participation in the Moral March on Washington is vital because you bring a unique and powerful perspective to the fight for justice.

As individuals directly affected by the justice system, your stories and experiences highlight the urgent need for systemic reform. By standing together, we can draw national attention to the injustices we face and push for meaningful changes that will benefit not only ourselves but also future generations. This march is more than a protest; it is a moral outcry for a fair and just society, and your voice is essential in this collective demand for transformation.

Join us on June 29 in Washington, D.C., to march in solidarity and advocate for a brighter, more equitable future. Together, we can make a profound impact and move closer to achieving the justice we all deserve. Let us come together as a community and show the strength and resilience of justice-impacted individuals in the face of adversity. We look forward to marching alongside you and making our voices heard.
