Moral Monday – National Day of Fasting and Focus

Today, June 8th, two weeks after the the murder of George Floyd, the Poor People’s Campaign: A National Call for Moral Revival is calling for a Moral Monday National Day of Fasting and Focus, which will culminate at 5:00 p.m. They are asking people to stop where you are for 8 minutes and 46 seconds to have a moment of silence in honor of the amount of time George Floyd had a knee on his neck.

Whether in your homes, at work, or in the streets, they are calling for people to stop wherever they are to join in for a live-streamed moment of silence, litany and a message of support for the uprisings across the country and a call for organizing a movement in this moment from Bishop William J. Barber, II, co-chair of the Poor People’s Campaign: A National Call for Moral Revival
