The National Poor People’s Campaign/A National Call for Moral Revival Oregon activists will be gathering at the State Capitol on Monday, Feb. 5 for a 10:00 AM press conference. Join us in Salem for the 30 minute press conference as we deliver a letter of intent to the Oregon legislature. This will be a coordinated press conference happening in 25 states. Persons impacted by the evils of systemic racism, poverty, the war economy, ecological devastation will share their stories. We will deliver letters to Speaker Tina Kotek and Pro Tempore Paul Hovey, letting the legislature know that we’re here and we’re building power across the state.
There will also be a meeting at St. Mark’s Lutheran Church (790 Marion St. NE) at 8:45 AM on Monday, Feb. 5 before the press conference. Watch Facebook or contact Bob Rossi at firstname.lastname@example.org for final details.
The New Campaign picks up the thread from the Campaign begun and inspired by Dr. King. Oregon is one of many states where we are seeing strong interest in the Campaign.
