Poor People's Campaign
Mothers Out Front is a partner of the Poor People’s Campaign: A National Call for Moral Revival. We stand in solidarity with the mission of this coalition and its important actions.
The Poor People’s campaign has created an audit "that reveals how the evils of systemic racism, poverty, ecological devastation, and the war economy and militarism are persistent, pervasive, and perpetuated by a distorted moral narrative that must be challenged."
The campaign contends that "we must stop the attention violence that refuses to see these injustices and acknowledge the human and economic costs of inequality."
The campaign is holding 40 days of events and actions in Washington D.C. and state capitals around the country. Mothers Out Front members and teams are participating in these actions and building them into their own campaigns.
Mothers Out Front is committed to working for climate justice. In our efforts to build an inclusive movement we keep our mission of a livable climate for all children at the center of our work. We focus resources particularly in those communities who suffer the injustices of climate change and fossil fuel use today and have been historically marginalized.
We lift the voices of those who care for and nurture children so that we are heeded by those in power. The Poor People’s Campaign is designed to shift the balance of power away from the few and lift up those who have been marginalized for too long. We must join the ranks of those who are determined not to rest until justice and equality are a reality for all.
