Nothing Less Than a Call for a National Moral Revival: Join Feb. 8 ONE WILPF Call

By the ONE WILPF Call Team

On our February 8 ONE WILPF Call, Ciara Taylor of the Poor People’s Campaign will discuss how WILPF members and branches can connect with this ally organization and engage in meaningful contributions to their planned MAY DAYS OF ACTION from Mother’s Day through Summer Solstice – May 13-June 21.  

This new Ad Hoc Committee WILPF4PPC, under Mary Bricker-Jenkins, responds to our overarching mission of Economic Justice and to calls emerging from our 2017 Congress for “System Change” that lifts up actions that can have an impact on Main Street.

The first organizing call for the WILPF4PPC Committee took place on Sunday, January 28. A follow-up call was held on Wednesday, January 31. But it’s not too late to sign up to work with this committee that combines the four pillars of Martin Luther King’s original Poor People’s Campaign:  Poverty, Systemic Racism, Ecological Devastation and the War Economy. Or just join the call on February 8 to learn more about the Poor People’s Campaign. 

When we say that WILPF connects human rights and economic justice with the roots of war, this is exactly what we mean.
