First Pres, through the Social Justice and Peacemaking Committee, has been working with the Poor People’s Campaign: A National Call for Moral Revival. Here are some opportunities for education and advocacy:

Wednesday, July 15, 5:30pm - Virtual Town Hall: Defund Police, Invest in Communities

Prior to our Capital Region Organizing Meeting (info below), join VOCAL-NY for a virtual town hall.

Come hear from directly impacted individuals about what divestment from ineffective, racist, & militarized forces into community needs can mean for the wellness of our communities. We know these changes will only happen through a thoughtful, deliberate, participatory process. Join us as we collectively re-envision what racial and socioeconomic justice, equity, and TRUE community safety can look like for ALL of New York State.
RSVP for call info.

Wednesday, July 15, 7pm - Capital Region PPC Organizing Meeting

Our next public, monthly organizing meeting! Join to learn about the work of the campaign in the Capital Region and take action together. Share the Facebook event here.

Wednesday, July 22, 6-8pm - NYSPPC 101 Workshop - RSVP here.

Looking to deepen your knowledge and understanding of the campaign, it's vision, values, and strategy? Join leaders from the NYS Poor People's Campaign for a participatory workshop where we'll dive into those topics and connect with next steps for action.

This will be a great workshop if you're new to the campaign, and an opportunity to grow your understanding and clarity around the campaign in a collective way.
