Your fellow peers, Kelly Madden, Daniela Rivero, Tali Abraham, and Ryan Kresge are the student leaders behind the Poor People’s Campaign at Ithaca College!
The Poor People’s Campaign: A National Call for Moral Revival has
emerged from more than a decade of work by grassroots community and religious
leaders, organizations and movements fighting to end systemic racism, poverty,
militarism, environmental destruction & related injustices and to build a just,
sustainable and participatory society. Rev. Dr. Liz Theoharris and Rev. Dr. William J. Barber work in conjunction with the Kairos Center of Religions, Rights, and Social Justice, of New York City, as well as Repairers of Breach. This campaign is not a religious or faith-based movement. However, we encourage the gathering of people around faith as a way to come together.
The 4 evils of society that we are focusing on to combat in our Campus Community
– systematic racism
-ecological/ environmental devastation
This movement is about you, your struggles and the daily injustices society hands you. This is the first national campus chapter of The Poor People’s Campaign! They hope to engage members to get as involved as you can be. That being said…
How can you get involved as a student, staff, or faculty member ?
Here at Ithaca College we have the privilege of living, studying, and working in an overall pretty inclusive environment. But that doesn’t mean systematic racism, sexism, poverty, and environmental devastation aren’t everyday issues. Here’s some ways you can get involved or get others involved on campus.
1.- Contact the student leaders to get the flyer and pledge cards for the National Poor People’s Campaign, please feel free to print that out and hand it out, post it up, and share it on social media! If you need somewhere to print out flyers head to OSEMA (third floor of campus center). If you would rather print out a copy of each and hand it back to one of us (student leaders), you can feel free to hand it to us at our first event on March 5th! There will also be more pledge cards and flyers at this meeting as well.
2.- Connect with us on social media and SHARE!!!
3.- Join our Photo Campaign: Add your voice to the growing number of New Yorkers calling for a #PoorPeoplesCampaign: A National Call for Moral Revival! Take a picture of yourself with a message saying why you’re committed and tag us! #WhyPPC
