The United States of America will be 244 years old on Saturday. I ask you, how are we going to celebrate?

The Poor People’s campaign was in our building in 2018 and I remember this moment, when I swear it happened this way, I went downstairs to greet the folks who had showed up and it was the organizers.

Step up because oppressive systems dim the beneficiaries’ divine spark and full humanity. For the love of God, step up.” More
