Hospital Workers Join Chicago Launch of the Poor People's Campaign

Hospital workers joined fast food workers yesterday on the 50th anniversary of the historic Memphis sanitation strike, which became a rallying cry of the 1968 Poor People’s Campaign to end poverty and racism led by Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. A couple years before, in 1966, Dr. King traveled to Chicago’s Marquette Park neighborhood to fight for fair housing and equal opportunities for poor people. He endured a hateful mob to fight for poor people. Yesterday, as part of a new Poor People’s Campaign led by faith leaders like Rev. Barber and workers, hospital workers marched to Marquette Park calling for a $15 minimum wage and strong unions. Learn more: https://goo.gl/nuQfHY
