40 Days of Action

Keep it up: Our 40 Days of Action Have Begun

  • Actions

On Monday, many of you joined the more than 400 people who came to the Massachusetts State House for the Poor People’s Campaign: A National Call for Moral Revival.  to launch the largest wave of nonviolent in civil disobedience in US history. 

Twenty-six people trained in nonviolent civil disobedience blocked traffic on Park St. and Beacon St., and risked arrest for over an hour. Instead of arresting us, the Boston Police closed down Park st. and restricted Beacon st. This action kicks off our our six-week season of nonviolent direct action in Massachusetts.

For the first week, we focused on child poverty, women in poverty and people with disabilities. Monday’s actions come as the Trump administration pushes work requirements for SNAP recipients and seeks to cut $7 billion from a child healthcare program.
