Join the Office of Black Church Studies at Duke Divinity School at the Poor People's Campaign's National Call for Moral Revival, a digital mass assembly in which people from more than 40 states suffering from poverty, COVID-19, and police brutality will tell their stories and demand a moral agenda.
The assembly and march will be aired at 10 a.m. and 6 p.m. EST on Saturday, June 20, and at 6 p.m. EST on Sunday, June 21. It can be viewed at June2020.org, and MSNBC will livestream the entire event, as will other local and national media. Streaming/broadcasting will be available in all formats.
OBCS joins hundreds of mobilizing partners — including 14 national unions, 16 national religious denominations and dozens civil rights organizations — in the campaign for the Mass Poor People’s Assembly and Moral March on Washington.
“We are committed to ministries of liberation and reconciliation, the prophetic and the pastoral," said Dr. David Emmanuel Goatley, director of OBCS and research professor of theology and Black Church Studies at the Divinity School, in announcing the decision to partner with the Poor People’s Campaign for the event. "We envision a world of just love that enables the flourishing of all — especially those who endure poverty because of the extraction policies and practices of the powerful. We rejoice to support the Poor People's Campaign's National Call for Moral Revival and are committed to working for a world where justice reigns.”
