The New Poor People’s Campaign: A National Call for a Moral Revival and the Institute for Policy Studies recently released its in-depth audit entitled “The Souls of Poor Folk.”
The Souls of Poor Folk traces the 50 years since 1968, when Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., and thousands of Americans, alarmed at their government’s blindness to human need, launched the Poor People’s Campaign. This document examines what the Campaign has identified as the “Four Evils”: structural racism, poverty, the war economy / militarism, and environmental devastation. You can read the full report here.
