Poor People's Campaign Partner

FOR is a partner in the Poor People's Campaign: A National Call for Moral Revival. This new Poor People's Campaign picks up where FOR member, Reverend Martin Luther King, Jr. left off 50 years ago when he sought to unite poor people across lines of race and geography and push their priorities onto the federal agenda. The campaign brings together organizations with a longstanding commitment to confronting poverty and inequality. A report called, "The Souls of Poor Folks" lays out our common agenda.

Population(s) Served
Economically disadvantaged people

The conversation around reparations has gained momentum as more than a fringe movement. Last year, a United Nations report concluded that African Americans should receive reparations for slavery and police brutality. Noteworthy ideas continue to emerge from experts on the topic with a renewed push to examine H.R. 40. Key to FOR's Reparations Campaign is truth-telling regarding atrocities committed, a review of ideas currently being shared, and the development a common set of objectives.

Population(s) Served
People of African descent

FOR prepares communities for targeted nonviolent action grounded in deep abiding love. The agency has been present in communities like Ferguson and Charlottsville, ensuring that organizers and resisters are equipped with the tools they need.

Population(s) Served

Ethnic and racial groups
