The 5 Evils,
Demands & Priorities

Over the past two years, the Poor People’s Campaign: A National Call for Moral Revival has reached out to communities in more than 30 states across this nation. We have met with tens of thousands of people, witnessing the strength of their moral courage in trying times. We have gathered testimonies from hundreds of poor people and we have chronicled their demands for a better society. The following moral agenda expressed in these priorities is drawn from this deep engagement and commitment to these struggles of the poor and dispossessed.
