Dear UFPJ Activist,On this 51st anniversary of the assassination of Martin Luther King, Jr. let us all commit to action on behalf of Dr. King’s opposition to racism, militarism, and extreme materialism. As he so prophetically said, “A nation that continues year after year to spend more money on military defense than on programs of social uplift is approaching spiritual death.“
Today, UFPJ is supporting the NEW Poor People’s Campaign—A National Call for Moral Revival to unite tens of thousands of people across the country and challenge the evils of systemic racism, poverty, the war economy, ecological devastation and our nation’s distorted morality.
Find information about events, trainings and MORE that are being planned where your are—or CREATE new events in your community. Work with this national campaign to oppose racism, poverty, war and climate change. UFPJ encourages all our members and member groups to step up and join these important national efforts.
Please plan events this week with your colleagues and partner organizations to recall Dr. King’s historic denouncing of the War in Vietnam and the ways in which the United States has become“the greatest purveyor of violence in the world today.” Find resources for local events that UFPJ has created and thank you for all your work for Peace and Justice!
