A Quaker Meeting in Camas, WA

Martin Luther King and the Poor People’s Campaign

Some holidays are easy to celebrate. We know what to do. Thanksgiving, Christmas, 4th of July. Some are a little trickier. A bit more illusive, like Martin Luther King Jr Day.

Join us on Wed. Jan. 18th 6pm-8pm as part of our Soup and Bread Discussions for a lively teach-in and dialogue on the 1968 Poor People’s Campaign– the last campaign of the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr’s life. We’ll talk about the evolution of King’s politics and theology toward the end of his life, the grassroots leaders (including some Washingtonians!) who helped to carry out the campaign after King’s death, and the lessons from this historic movement that we can apply in our local work for justice and equality today. Movement songs to be included, so bring your singing voices!

We will have food at 6pm and there will be childcare (donations).
