    “Join us for a night of unity as The Poor People’s Campaign organizes the interfaith community in the Phoenix metro area to help carry on the work of the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr in the 60’s and fight for 140 million people currently living in poverty in America and the many who live in poverty in Arizona.

    We will have speakers and prayers from different faith backgrounds, music and a call to action to fight for those living in poverty in our state and to tackle other issues that affect marginalized communities in our state.

    All people are welcomed to join us!
