Institute for Policy Studies

The Institute for Policy Studies produced a report "in support of the Poor People’s Campaign: A National Call for Moral Revival:"

"This campaign, marking the 50th anniversary of the Poor People’s Campaign led by the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. and other leaders, aims to build a broad and deep national movement rooted in the leadership of the poor and dispossessed as moral agents and reflecting the great moral teachings to unite our country around a transformative agenda to combat poverty, racism, militarism, and ecological devastation. We worked in collaboration with the Co-Chairs of the Poor People’s Campaign, Rev. Dr. William J. Barber II and Rev. Dr. Liz Theoharis, and the Tri-Chairs of the Campaign's Audit Committee, Rev. Dr. James Forbes, Dr. Timothy Tyson, and Shailly Gupta Barnes.[2]
