The Bread of Justice

There are about 600 billionaires in the United States today, but there are 140 million poor and low-income people who struggle to make ends meet. Why is there such great disparity in income and wealth, and what can we do about it? This event will explore several ways that we can respond to racial and economic injustice, both locally and nationally.

Poor People's Campaign:
  A Call for Moral Revival

Moral March on Washington: The Poor People's Campaign has five priority issues: poverty, racism, militarism, ecological devastation, and a distorted moral narrative. On June 20 there will be a Mass Poor People's Assembly and Moral March on Washington, DC, to challenge the public policies that enable concentration of wealth and power.

Bread for the World:
  Nutrition and the Racial Wealth Gap

Global Nutrition: Ending hunger around the world is not just about providing people with enough food - it's also about providing the right nutrients. Globally, 155 million children are stunted and will not have the chance to achieve their full potential because of poor nutrition early in life.
U.S. Racial Wealth Gap: Bread's new simulation tool illustrates the connections among racial equity, hunger, poverty, and wealth.

Traces of the Trade:
  Slavery, Racism, and Reparations

Slavery, Racism, and Reparations: Beginning with the film "Traces of the Trade" which examines the largest slave-trading family in U.S. history - in New England, not the deep South, this session will explore the legacy of U.S. racial apartheid (slavery, reconstruction, Jim Crow, red-lining, mass incarceration ...) and what is our appropriate response today.
