A National Call for Moral Renewal

WHY ARE WE WALK?

We gather and march on June 18, 2022 because any nation that ignores nearly half of its citizens is in moral, economic and political crisis. There were 140 million people in poverty or in dire need of economic ruin before the pandemic. Since March 2020, when hundreds of thousands have died, millions are on the brink of hunger and eviction, and still without health care or living wages, the wealth of billionaires has grown by more than 2,000 billions of dollars.
MONDAY APRIL 11

The Mass Assembly of the Poor and Low-Wage Workers and the Moral March on Washington and the Mobilization of the Ballot Box Tour is coming to New York!

Spread the word and plan to take a bus from LI. We have bus pick up points in Brentwood (Wicks Road Park and Ride), Melville (Park and Ride) and Roslyn Heights (Christopher Morley Park). People coming from New York State must register through the nysppc, which provides free buses. https://docs.google.com/forms/d/e/1FAIpQLSfDdWJujcKp0ssHZuM8w4jpd9UrEDg4oJNk5LanOILkZ5dvtQ/viewform?usp=sf_link
