“Not only does Scripture call us to care for the poor, the Poor People’s Campaign is calling the nation to stand WITH those impacted by poverty,” says General Minister and President Terri Hord Owens. “We must transform our society according to the call of Scripture, and in obedience to Jesus’ commandment to love our neighbor as we love ourselves.”
Owens will be one of the featured speakers at the Poor People’s Campaign: A National Call to Moral Revival kickoff rally at 2 pm May 14 in Washington DC. She will be joined by Sister Linda Sarsour, former executive director of the Arab American Association of New York, to address the impact of poverty on women, children and those with disabilities.
