2022 Low Wage Workers and Moral March on Washington DC – A Note From the Frontlines by Jessica Motsinger
I was honored to be one of 36 State Campaign Organizers hired around the Nation by The Repairers of the Breach. Their goal was to mobilize and organize Illinois and other States to get folks out to the Low Wage Workers and Moral March on Washington DC on June 18th. I was honored to work with Illinois Poor People’s Campaign and some fantastic organizers and activists in Illinois and the surrounding states. With the help of friends, allies, and organizers, we signed up 45 people from Southern Illinois! Indivisible Metro East sent some members to the March, Illinois showed up and showed out! Making so many new connections with many different organizers and activists were terrific. We worked hard together and built a strong camaraderie to help organize and mobilize our people to the polls this November!
-Forward Together, Not One Step Back.
