Daring Democracy and March on Harrisburg Book Tour
Adam Eichen, co-author with Frances Moore Lappe of the 2017-18 UUA Common Read book Daring Democracy: Igniting Power, Meaning, and Connection for the America We Want, will be joining March On Harrisburg for a speaking tour and democracy training hosted by Unitarian Universalist churches across Pennsylvania. The forum will include a speech from Eichen, March On Harrisburg Executive Director Rabbi Michael Pollack, and other March On Harrisburg organizers. Additional organizers from the Poor People's Campaign may be added. March On Harrisburg has signed onto Rev. William Barber’s Poor People's Campaign, a 6-week national campaign that will engage in nonviolent civil disobedience simultaneously at 25 State Capitol buildings across the country, intending to launch a "moral revival" in our national political debate. After the speakers, there will be a citizen lobbying training on our anti-corruption, pro-democracy bills. We will also be providing information on how to participate in the Poor People’s Campaign.
Organized by March on Harrisburg, Daring Democracy, Poor People's Campaign, and the UU Pennsylvania Legislative Advocacy Network.
