This week on Love and Revolution Radio, we speak with Rev. Bruce Wright, one of the organizers of the 26-year old Poor Peoples Economic and Human Rights Campaign about their recent 140-mile march from Philadelphia to DC, and the revival of Dr. King's Resurrection City. (This campaign is different from the Poor People's Campaign with Rev. Barber, and we'll talk about the differences on the show.) Sign up for our weekly email: http://www.riverasun.com/love-and-revolution-radio/ "This campaign grew out of historic roots and the understanding that the best solutions for ending poverty and homelessness come from the people affected by it." - Rev. Bruce Wright About Our Guest: Rev. Bruce Wright is the cohost of the Revolutionary Road Show, a radio program broadcasting out of Tampa, FL. He is an organizer for the rights of unhoused peoples and a dedicated campaigner to the economic and human rights of all. He runs the Refuge, an international network of outreaches that work in solidarity with homeless and poor people. Rivera had the opportunity to meet him in Florida and see his work among those facing homelessness first hand, and it's an honor to have him on the show. Contact Rev.
