Our second guest will be Bruce Wright. Bruce is the Florida director of the  Poor People’s Economic Human Rights Campaign. We’ll talk with Bruce about the campaign and the eight days he spent in Minneapolis following George Floyd’s murder.

We have launched a Poor People’s Army in an effort to save our lives. More people in the U.S. have died due to the opioid crisisthan from the Vietnam War. Our children continue to go to bed hungry, are forced to attend inadequate schools, and are the victims of violence.

Our families are not surviving, and in order for us to fight for a future for our children and the planet, we are getting organized.

On opening day of the Milwaukee Democratic National Convention, July 13, 2020, we want to amass the largest Poor People’s Army in the belly of the beast – to fight for humanity. We are waging a war against poverty for those of us here at home and those abroad. The children of Africa, of Venezuela, of Puerto Rico and Palestine (and the list goes on) are counting on us! Can we count on you to enlist today?
