Join Hometown Action in support of the Alabama Poor People's Campaign by attending the Poor People's Hearing in Montgomery the evening of March 4th at 6:00 pm.
We will lift up the voices and stories of those most affected by systemic racism, poverty, militarism and the war economy, ecological devastation, and the distorted moral narrative, and demand that our legislators take action on these issues during the 2019 Alabama legislative session.
Our policy agenda includes a vision of developing and supporting elected representatives working in closely with the people they serve—people like us. The Poor People's Hearing puts impacted people front and center, with political leaders in the audience to hear our powerful voices. Speakers will include Hometown Action members, and we are delighted that the Rev. Dr. William Barber and the Rev. Liz Theoharris, leaders of the National Poor People's Campaign, will join us for the hearing.
Forward Together! Not One Step Back!
