January 16, 2019, 6–8 pm
From CEJ Buffalo & The WNY Peace Center:
Join us for a transformative night of Song, Political Education, and Story-sharing!
"To Change the World, we Must Change Ourselves"
This year, The Poor Peoples Campaign has made tremendous progress in the struggle to end poverty. We have taken the fight from our home in Buffalo, NY to Albany and to Washington D.C. to demand justice during our 40 Days of Action. Now that a strong foundation has been made for the struggle forward, the next step is to speak with you.
Our Politicians, Religious leaders, and Teachers can only do so much before it is our turn to pitch in and Become The Change That We Want To See.
During the night we will learn about the why&how-to-combat being poor, how this connects us to eachother, and how our stories&songs light our journey forward.
What: "And the Beat Goes On: The Poor People's Campaign 51 years later" song, poetry, and history of the PPC
When: Wednesday January 16th from 6-8pm
Where: Raqs Solidarity (322 Amherst St Buffalo NY)
