Thanks to all of you who have supported this effort, we had a hugely successful first Mass Meeting at the 1199SEIU union hall in Quincy. About 300 people came for speakers, music, singing, dance and Ben & Jerry's Ice Cream. This was made possible by our online donations.

We have raised nearly $1500, and have now upped our goal to $3000, to pay for our next large meeting to be held the first week of May. We also use funds for trainings, materials, art, outreach, childcare, transportation, music and all of the small activities that keep a genuine people's movement running.

Your continued support of this movement is helping it grow bigger in both Massachusetts and in our country as a whole. Forward Together, Not One Step Back.

Thanks to everyone who has donated so far.. We are now more than 2/3rds of the way to our first goal.

We are excited about the upcoming Mass Meeting of the Massachusetts Poor People's Campaign April 7th. (register here: https://actionnetwork.org/forms/f9bfbe1789527bab7e86ef8d934911a24910cc1d).

There will also be a public meeting in Lexington.
Details here: https://www.facebook.com/events/1501592739969446/?acontext=%7B%22source%22%3A4%2C%22action_history%22%3A%22null%22%7D&source=4&action_history=null&ref=4

One new use of our funds will be to support bringing impacted people from Western Mass. to the statewide event on April 7th.

This week is the 50th anniversary of the assassination of Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King. Although he is revered as a national hero, much of his vision remains unaccomplished. In some ways poor people and those denied voting rights are worse off today than during his lifetime. It is time to change this, and recharge King's original moral mission.

The Poor People's Campaign will be highlighting different aspects of Dr. King's moral agenda, and their modern counterparts, over the six weeks from Mothers Day through June 23rd, both in Massachusetts, 25 to 30 other states, and in Washington DC.

This is what your contributions help accomplish locally. Thanks Again.
