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.

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.
Thanks to all who have donated so far. We are now eligible to raise funds under Massachusetts charitable regulations.
We are raising funds for the expense of this first Mass Meeting of the Massachusetts Poor People's Campaign. This will be an amazing event with speakers, music, dance and ice cream.. all in support of our upcoming campaign of civil disobedience to raise awareness of Dr. King's four evils: systemic racism, poverty, the war economy and our modern evil, ecological devastation.
