Today was the last Moral Monday of the #PoorPeoplesCampaign. Here in Alabama we marched on the capitol with working people, activists, clergy and @UniteThePoor to elevate the circumstances of the 45 million people living below the poverty line in America. #TheMarchContinues
“Our country, supposedly built on justice for all, was built on slavery and genocide. But the power of the people united is greater than the people in power. And I don’t want to see my grandchildren here in 50 years.” — Tony Algood #PoorPeoplesCampaign #TheMarchContinues
“It ain’t about color, religion, sex — it’s about humanity. The upper class want to see you as a victim. I see you as someone struggling for justice, not for a few but everyone. Everyone needs this work.” — Imam Salbri #PoorPeoplesCampaign #TheMarchContinues
“We're a movement of people who believe children from every nation are sacred. We believe in the covenant of loving our neighbors. We believe justice, mercy, compassion are choices we can make today.”—@AuburnWesley Rev Anna Crews Camphouse #PoorPeoplesCampaign #TheMarchContinues
“To the family in San Diego whose doors were pried open by a crowbar by an ICE agent to enter their home without a warrant: I will fight for you. My eyes were forced open and now I refuse to close them.” — @ALimmigrant’s Viviana Lopez #PoorPeoplesCampaign #TheMarchContinues
“62 million workers earn less than a living wage. 4.4 million Americans with $1.4 trillion in debt. 3.5 million people in shelters. 38% of households—primarily black & brown—whose net worth is $0. Yet we continue the lie of the American dream if you work for it!” —Tony Algood
“I’m 67 years old. I’ve seen it all. Mistreatment. Racism. But I will not quit, and America better look up because here we come.” — Wesley Young of Mobile Public Works #PoorPeoplesCampaign #TheMarchContinues
