Franciscan Action Network has signed up as a mobilizing partner in the Poor People’s Campaign moral march in Washington, D.C.
On June 18, people from across the nation will assemble and march as a moral coalition to shift the moral narrative, put a face on the pain of our people and challenge the notion that this is the best we can do. Take a moment to watch this call to action from the Poor People’s Campaign.
Drawing on our deepest values stemming from the Constitution and our faith traditions, we will march to summon the political will to use the abundant resources we have to meet the needs of all people. America has to guarantee living wages and adequate income, healthcare, affordable housing, quality public education, expanded voting rights and access to democracy, fair taxation, debt relief, just immigration, a climate where we can all thrive, and a world committed to peace rather than violence and war.
FAN will gather Franciscans and Franciscan-hearted people for a brief prayer service at 9am outside St. Patrick’s Catholic Church on 10th Street NW and then we will march together to the assembly location at 3rd Street and Pennsylvania Ave. Click here for more details.
Buses are available from all over the country. Click here to learn about bus options.
St. Patrick’s Church is located near the Metro Center and Gallery Place Metro stations as well as ample public parking garages.
