The Poor People’s Campaign argues that the day-to-day inequalities experienced by the 140 million Americans living in poverty and low wealth result from systemic, structural, and interconnected forms of injustice. The campaign views poverty, systemic racism, militarism, and ecological devastation as fundamentally intertwined forces in society that act in concert to bring about unequal outcomes marginalizing millions of people. This argument is presented by the Poor People’s Campaign most clearly in a report published by the campaign and the Institute for Policy Studies in 2018- The Souls of Poor Folk: Auditing America 50 Years After The Poor People’s Campaign Challenged Racism, Poverty and the War Economy/ Militarism and Our National Morality (Gupta Barnes et al 2018).
