Vigil for the Poor Peoples’ Campaign June 2 at noon

June 2 @ 12:00 pm - August 24 @ 1:00 pm

Free

The Peace Coalition of Southern Illinois/FOR Monthly Vigil for Peace and Justice will be held Saturday, June 2, Noon to 1 P.M. at the corner of Illinois Ave. and Main Street in Carbondale.
This month our community joins this national effort “to challenge the evils of systemic racism, poverty, the war economy, ecological devastation and the nation’s distorted morality.”
The Poor People’s Campaign has spent two years gathering testimonies and engaging in an assessment of how we have arrived at this place. From this information they have prepared a “Declaration of Fundamental Rights and Poor People’s Moral Agenda”
