At the Poor People’s Moral Action Congress this June, people from all over the country will convene on Capitol Hill to frame the national political narrative around the REAL emergencies facing 140 million people today. Somebody’s been hurting our people, it’s gone on far too long and we won’t be silent anymore!

Everyone who attends will be there for the release of our Moral Budget, a forum with presidential candidates, a National Freedom School and Congressional hearing.

The Disciples Center for Public Witness wholeheartedly endorses and strongly supports this event.
