Supporting Healthy Black Youth: Visible Youth - March on Washington

Urban Triage Organizes Youth March to Washington DC in Partnership with Milwaukee Grassroots Organizations 

We're excited to announce the Supporting Healthy Black Youth: Visible Youth Mobilization for The Poor People's Campaign Moral March on Washington, DC on June 18, 2022, in celebration of Juneteenth and Black liberation. In partnership with the Milwaukee Poor People's Campaign, Breaking Barriers, Community Task Force MKE, All Of Us Or None, and Tech*Niques--mobilizing youth across Madison and Milwaukee.

June 18, 2022, Mass Poor People's & Low-Wage Workers' Assembly & Moral March on Washington and to the Polls will be a generationally transformative and disruptive gathering of poor and low-wealth people, state leaders, faith communities, moral allies, unions, and partnering organizations. It is NOT just a day of action. It is a declaration of an ongoing, committed moral movement to 1) build power, 2) shift the political narrative, and 3) make real policies to address poverty and low wealth from the bottom up fully. The Assembly is a pulling point of organizing from fall 2021 to summer 2022 and will spring us toward the 2022 elections. All along the way, we will be doing MORE: Mobilizing, Organizing, Registering, Educating, Engaging, and Empowering people for a movement that votes!
