Join the Poor People's Campaign and multiple partners for its Moral March for Democracy, starting in Georgetown, Texas. The four-day, 27-miles march will finish with a rally
at the State Capitol of Austin.

On Saturday morning, 151 cars will proceed from Georgetown to the state capital in honor
of 151 years since passage of the 15th amendment, which said the right to vote shall not be abridged or denied on the basis of race or previous conditions of servitude.

A hearse with copies of bills to bury voting rights, a higher federal minimum wage and immigrant rights will lead the cars.

We are demanding:

1. End the filibuster
2. Pass all provisions of the For the People Act
3. Fully restore the 1965 Voting Rights Act
4. Raise the federal minimum wage to $15/hr
5. Permanent Protects for All Immigrants

CALL TO ACTION

The PPC released a letter to US senators demanding an end to the filibuster rule.

LETTER STATES: “The filibuster has been used to block civil rights, labor rights, voting rights, living wages, healthcare access, especially for poor and low-wealth Black, Brown, White, Asian and Indigenous people. The filibuster continues to facilitate idolatrous policy platforms about who deserves to thrive and who does not.”

Californians can, with a few clicks, send the letter directly to Senators Padilla and Feinstein.

Join in emailing this letter to our senators to demand an end to the filibuster (easy peasy!):
