Poor People's Campaign- Sacramento Caravan

 The Poor People's Campaign: A National Call for Moral Revival will organize Moral Monday caravans to morn the quarter million Americans who have died from COVID-19, demand a smooth and open transition of power and lift up the moral policies we need immediately and in the first days of the new administration. RSVP here:

The caravans will kick-off a "Week of Mourning" to mourn the politics of death that have plagued our nation and to demand a politics of life. This Thanksgiving, a day already marked by many indigenous peoples as a Day of Mourning, families across the country will remember and mourn the loss of loved ones who have died from COVID-19 and poverty. Millions of poor and low-income households also face mounting bills, evictions and hunger, after months of unemployment, cuts in wages, and the government's failure to pass a comprehensive COVID-19 relief package.

End the suffering of out families and communities is a moral mandate to all who are tasked with governance now and in the new year. Calls for cooperation can not compromise with injustice.

For those not participating in a caravan, join us for the online action at 11:30 AM PT at where we will get reports from each of the participating states, launch an online Mourning Wall for victims of COVID-19 and poverty and launch a petition demanding short and long-term action from the White House, Congress and state governments.
