Donna MillerThis month, the Rev. Denise Anderson, coordinator of the Racial and Intercultural Justice Office, tells us about the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.)'s relationship with The Poor People's Campaign, A National Call for Moral Revival.

From the very beginning, Presbyterians have been key fixtures in the Poor People’s Campaign, a National Call for Moral Revival. Its co-chair, the Rev. Dr. Liz Theoharis, is a Presbyterian minister and director of the Kairos Center for Religions, Rights, and Social Justice. Presbyterians were represented at the December 2017 launch of the Campaign and have been active in its efforts ever since. We have served on state coordinating committees, risked arrest in acts of moral fusion direct action, and hosted mass meetings. Now as we deepen our work in eradicating poverty and extend the Matthew 25 invitation to more and more churches and mid-councils, I believe there is an opportunity to further glean from and participate in this movement.
