(Feb. 1, 2021) — The Washington Poor People’s Campaign invites all supporters of racial justice to join two important events today.
At 12:30 p.m. Pacific time today, on the anniversary of the start of the sit-in movement on Feb. 1, 1960, in Greensboro, N.C., the PPC will launch Moral Mondays during the first 100 days of the Biden-Harris administration. (This event will be ASL interpreted and captioned.) The PPC will push Democrats, Republicans and independents to demand just COVID relief and to immediately enact a living wage of $15 an hour covering all minimum-wage workers, including tipped workers, and stronger, expanded union rights by holding a massive call-in to the offices of Senate leaders Chuck Schumer and Mitch McConnell. Join this event via livestream here.
At 7 p.m. tonight, Washington PPC will host its First Monday of the Month Open House via Zoom. This is a chance to meet other folks in Washington state and hear about actions we can take here to push policy priorities for our state. Join this Zoom open house here.
