Ohio Statehouse 1 Capitol Square, Columbus, OH 43215

The National Poor People's Campaign has launched their 40 Days of Moral Action across the country. They are calling attention to the issues that marginalized individuals face in our country by engaging in highly publicized, non-violent moral fusion direct action, over a 6-week period in at least 30 states and the District of Columbia. Between May 13 and June 23, the Campaign is forcing serious national examination of the enmeshed evils of systemic racism, systemic poverty, ecological devastation and the war economy during a key election year while strengthening connection informed and committed grassroots leadership in every state.

Throughout these 40 days of Moral Action, the Campaign will push forward a concretemoral agenda, and draw on art, music, popular education and religious traditions to challenge the nation’s distorted moral narrative.
