Leading Jewish Organizations Endorse the PPC

As the Poor People's Campaign (PPC) swept the States this summer, several leading Jewish organizations, many of which are national, endorsed this historic movement.

Somebody’s Hurting Our People: Children, Women and People with Disabilities Living in Poverty

Week 2 (May 20-26)
Linking Systemic Racism and Poverty: Voting Rights, Immigration, Xenophobia, Islamophobia, and the Mistreatment of Indigenous Communities
