Martin Luther King, Jr.’s legacy of fighting for racial and economic justice continues today in California. In December, we gathered with faith and moral leaders and MLK’s recently revived Poor People’s Campaign to make clear our goals: California must eliminate extreme poverty for children and families, and prioritize the needs of the poor.
Although poverty hits across racial divides, it disproportionately affects people of color in California. We want better for our kids. We’re going to be making sure our leaders know that in 2019 we want to see California’s groundbreaking End Child Poverty Plan that will eliminate deep child poverty enacted.
Watch and share this video as you honor MLK’s legacy:
Fifty years after Martin Luther King, Jr.’s death, our country is more economically unequal. The need is urgent. Recommit to racial and economic justice, and get ready for action in 2019.

Thank you for being with us in this fight!
