Civic Dinner: Poor People's Campaign

Screen Shot 2017-12-28 at 9.22.36 PM.png

RSVP HERE: www.civicdinners.com/HOA-sundaysupper/dinners/288

The 2018 Hands On Atlanta Sunday Supper, presented by The Coca-Cola Company, will examine the Poor People’s Campaign, which was the focus of Reverend Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. during the final years of his life. The Poor People’s Campaign demanded economic equality, particularly through jobs and housing, and considered it a human (vs. civil) right. 

There are many contemporary parallels to the issues at the heart of the Poor People’s Campaign. In Atlanta, concerns about affordable housing and extreme income inequality were at the forefront of the mayoral debates. The rights of workers, quality public education and the affordability of quality health care dominate the national narrative.

The goal of each of these Sunday Supper conversations is take key learnings from the successes and failures of the Poor People’s Campaign and leverage this knowledge to envision solutions for today’s critical issues with a diverse, committed group of citizens from various sectors of Atlanta.

Hosted by: Shawn Walton

RESISTANCE SCHOOL MEET-UP

RESISTANCE SCHOOL MEET-UP

Greetings Atlanta,

Join me as I host Resistance School. Sign up here: https://www.resistanceschool.com/sign-up-1

From the ResistanceSchool.com site: 

Resistance School aims to deepen community-based organizing infrastructure nationwide in order to secure issue and electoral victories at the local, state, and national level and advance progressive values of fairness, equity, and inclusivity. Through high-quality training for both those new to organizing and those who want to deepen their skills, Resistance School aims to amplify communities’ capacity to lead and make the sustained change they seek. We believe that the power of collective action can break through barriers that undermine the people’s access to democracy.

Resistance School was founded by graduate students at Harvard, who wanted to find a way to contribute to the wave of new and renewed political activism in communities across the country. The curriculum was designed for groups to join trainings held on Harvard’s campus and live-streamed online to communities across the country.

Resistance School invites you to join with neighbors, friends, or classmates to participate in live-streamed trainings with renowned political campaigners, communicators, organizers, and academics. The skills they will showcase are critical to amplifying our collective impact.

Our team includes community and labor organizers; advocates for human rights, campaign finance reform, and veterans’ affairs; former staffers for Obama, Sanders, and Clinton presidential election campaigns; and journalists.
