Poor People's Moral Action Congress

When: Monday, June 17, 2019, 1:00 pm to Wednesday, June 19, 2019, 4:00 pm
Where: Trinity Washington University • 125 Michigan Avenue • Washington



Last week, we announced that we are holding a Poor People’s Moral Action Congress in June to make sure the issues facing the 140 million poor and low-income people in this country are part of the national conversation in 2020.


Everyone who attends will get to be part of a Congressional hearing, a forum with the chance to speak with 2020 candidates, the release of our Moral Budget and a Freedom School.

This country needs to hear from people like you. Learn more about what we are planning, register and see housing options here.


Coming out of the 40 Days last year—the most expansive wave of nonviolent civil disobedience in modern history—we knew that we were building something that could change this country.

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


A moral fusion movement needs people from all backgrounds and all walks of life to show up in big numbers and show the full breadth and power of the people.

Register now and join us in DC this June.


Fight poverty, not the poor!
