28th Annual Main Event - From the Broken Community to the Beloved Community
Time & Location
About the Event
The Poor People's Campaign: A National Call for Moral Renewal is a long-standing initiative focused on addressing the plight of poor people in American society.
In 1968, Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. and many others called for a “revolution of values” in America. They sought to build a broad, fusion movement that could unite poor and impacted communities across the country. Their name, The Poor People’s Campaign, was a direct cry from the underside of history.
Our keynote speaker is Rev. Dr. Jack Sullivan, Executive Director of The Ohio Council of Churches
"Pastor Jack," as he is known informally and personally, is an ordained minister in the Christian Church, Disciples of Christ in the US and Canada. A native of Cleveland, Ohio, Dr. Sullivan is an internationally renowned preacher and speaker, justice advocate, ecumenist, journalist, and death penalty abolitionist.
