You are invited to a Moral Revival Mass Meeting in the style of the civil rights movement on Tuesday, August 15, 7:00 p.m. at Central United Methodist Church., 201 University Blvd. NE (across from UNM). The event is part of a 50th anniversary Poor People's Campaign in 2017-2018 culminating with solidarity actions in May 2018 and beyond.

The revival will feature national religious leader Rev. William Barber, Repairers of the Breach team and New Mexico faith and justice leaders. Rev. Barber has visited Albuquerque in June 2016 to lay the groundwork for the creation of a local fusion coalition. Rev. Barber offered his vision at the Democratic National Convention in Philadelphia in July 2016. The New Mexico Conference of Churches (NMCC) helped sponsor a National Moral Day of Action in Santa Fe on September 12, 2016, an event that was held in all the state capitals that day.

The NMCC, New Mexico Interfaith Power & Light, Monte Vista Christian Church and others invite you to join the moral and ethical call to justice focusing us on concerns of economic disparity, out-of- sight military spending, racism and environmental degradation.
