Demanding our Freedom

Now, when we come to Washington, in this campaign, we are coming to get our check.

The Poor People’s Campaign and Martin Luther King, Jr.’s work continues today. Project South, an organization working to eliminating poverty and genocide, encourages all people to get involved with their volunteer opportunities, popular education programs and street teams. To learn more about how poverty continues to affect us in the 21st century, Dr. Cornell West and Tavis Smiley’s Poverty Tour highlight the plight of poor people of all races, colors, and creeds.
