Thank you for hosting a We Cry Justice book event! We are encouraging people to use the We Cry Justice book events as an organizing tool. Reaching out to local chapters of the Poor People's Campaign: A National Call for Moral Revival, local faith communities, community groups, colleges or universities can be a great way to partner, develop new relationships, and organize towards a Mass Poor People's Assembly & Moral March on Washington on June 18, 2022.
Below, please find resources that you can use to do outreach for your event, promote your event on social media, and host your virtual or in person event!
Having this team will enable us to expand the potential audience for the book and increase the effectiveness of our organizing strategy.
