BOSTON, MA (24/7 News Source)  --  Clergy and activists from across the Commonwealth say they are joining the Poor People's Campaign:  A National Call for Moral Revival.  

They gathered Monday at the State House declaring legislative leaders have failed to address issues, including what they describe as systemic racism and poverty. 

 A spokeswoman for the Massachusetts Poor People's Campaign coordinating committee says tens-of-millions of poor and low-income people in America will no longer be silent.  

Organizers says this spring there will be six weeks of direct action including waves of nonviolent disobedience demanding a change in course.
