    New Poor People Campaign to Launch on May 14

The Poor People's Campaign: A National Call for Moral Revival  is uniting tens of thousands of people across the country to challenge the evils of systemic racism, poverty, the war economy, ecological devastation and the nation's distorted morality.
National organizers are planning to launch The New Poor People's Campaign on Monday, May 14. Some of the communities where rallies were held are planning  special launch events on that date and on the days leading to launch date. And rallies will almost certainly occur after the launch date.

In New Mexico, organizers are planning events for six consecutive Mondays, beggining on April 14. An earlier launch event was already held in Albuquerque on Jan. 14, following a successful rally on mass revival in  August 2017
