Dear Friend,

Martin Luther King, Jr.’s legacy of fighting for racial and economic justice continues today in California. In December, we gathered with faith and moral leaders and MLK’s recently revived Poor People’s Campaign to make clear our goals: California must eliminate extreme poverty for children and families, and prioritize the needs of the poor.

Although poverty hits across racial divides, it disproportionately affects people of color in California. We want better for our kids. We’re going to be making sure our leaders know that in 2019 we want to see California’s groundbreaking End Child Poverty Plan that will eliminate deep child poverty enacted.

Watch and share the video:

"Faith calls us to lean all the way into this moment, to this action plan. I want to invite all of California to…. reimagine a future together where our children aren’t left behind." -Pastor Les Simmons
Fifty years after Martin Luther King, Jr.’s death, our country is more economically unequal. The need is urgent. Recommit to racial and economic justice, and get ready for action in 2019. Help out by sharing the video on Twitter, Facebook, or forwarding the link to a friend: http://www.endchildpovertyca.org/watch-the-video-mlks-fight-for-justice-continues-in-california/.

Thank you for being with us in this fight!

In solidarity,
Conway, Jackie, and the End Child Poverty in California Team
