“The Poor People’s Campaign was a project first introduced by the Reverend Dr. Martin Luther King, who was assassinated months after he announced it. It has been restarted by the Reverends William Barber and Liz Theoharis. The revived campaign kicks off actions in 41 states on May 14, the day after Mother’s Day. Recently, the campaign issued a comprehensive report called “The Souls of Poor Folk.” Our guest is the Institute for Policy Studies’ Sarah Anderson, a co-author of the report.”
