About the Event
The Cry of the Poor
Presented by Rev. Beth DuBois
Thursday, May 26 | 6:30 p.m. EDT (virtual option available)
The Poor People's Campaign: A National Call for Moral Justice is gathering in June for a Moral March and Assembly in Washington, DC. What does it mean to listen to the poor as people of faith? We will begin with a biblical reflection by Rev. Dr. Liz Theoharis, in "We Cry Justice: Reading the Bible with the Poor People's Campaign." Then, we will look at the history of the Poor People's Campaign in 1968 and today, its principles and demands, and its connection to catholic social teaching.
