Thank you for your support of the Poor Peoples Campaign. While the national PPC was started over three years ago, Oklahoma began exploring the creation of a state unit in August 2020. A small group gathered to discern interest in this venture and has since been striving toward making it a reality. The process has been like jumping on a fast train complicated by a pandemic and two major winter storms that obliterated some of our plans. We have learned many lessons and became more active in the movement, emphasizing its goals during the first 100 days of the new administration. The Poor Peoples Campaign is now moving forward with an aggressive plan for the next 500 days. That plan includes the announcement of a PPC resolution on May 24, 2021, setting forth its priorities for the next 500 days. On June 7, each participating state unit is encouraged to gather at the state capitols to share its support of the resolution. On June 20, 2021, another virtual nationwide event is scheduled to kick off our work toward attaining the vision outlined in the resolution.

We invite you to join us in work necessary to attain our goals regarding the wellbeing of all people. Please see our website at or follow our Facebook page at for updated information.

If you are interested in getting more involved, we are interested in helping you meet that goal. Our work requires many skills. We need help with digital expertise, art and music, base-building, faith support, identifying allies and partners, policy, media, and organizational skills. If one or more of these caught your eye, let me know, and I will help you find ways to share your skills as we work in oneness toward a more inclusive and loving world.
