How to Become a
Mobilizing or Faith Partner

Recognizing that the WAPPC will not be forming a new non-profit and is instead building a fusion coalition movement across the many divides in our society, we are looking for Movement Mobilizing Partners whose Mission, Vision, and Values are aligned with the Covenant of Non-Violence and Fundamental Principles of the Poor People’s Campaign and who want to build a coalition with us to fulfill on our common Mission and Vision in Washington State. We are especially looking for local members of national bodies that have become National Endorsing Organizations and National Faith Partners of the Poor People’s Campaign.

 

Mobilizing Partners agree to:

  • Allow us to put them on our website.

  • Send a representative to the WAPPC monthly Open House and, if asked, identify a testifier for the Open House

  • Put PPC actions in their newsletters, bulletins, etc.

  • Encourage their members to attend PPC actions

 

Please follow these steps to become a Washington State Poor People’s Campaign Movement Mobilizing Partner:

  1. Have your governing body (or authorized representative) of your faith community or organization review and sign the official Covenant of Non-Violence and Fundamental Principles of the Poor People’s Campaign. More information about the PPC can be found at www.poorpeoplescampaign.org. Please send an email to washington@poorpeoplescampaign.org if you have specific questions about Washington state.

  2. Designate a representative of your faith community or organization to be responsible for communicating with the Washington Coordinating Committee or subcommittees, to attend first Monday of the month virtual Open Houses, and periodic meetings when they are held to coordinate our strategic work together.

  3. Send the signed copy of the Covenant of Non-Violence and Fundamental Principles and the contact information for your designated representative to: washington@poorpeoplescampaign.org.

  4. The Washington State Coordinating Committee will have final approval of all additions to the list of WAPPC Movement Mobilizing Partners.
