Dear City Council members, Mayor Mueller ,
     Please help us publicize this important event on Wed. Dec. 11, by the Poor People's Campaign (modeled on the Rev. Martin Luther King's 1968 campaign), and supported by local peace and justice groups. Housing, living wages, healthcare, education, transportation, climate change issue hit low-income residents, and the un-housed particularly hard. Please show Menlo Park's support for this event. We want to encourage people to carpool, take church or city buses, or take the train to support this event. Having mayors and city council members supporting the 4 goals of the Poor People's Campaign will speak to your dedication for positive, peaceful change for the economically disadvantaged people of of Menlo Park, including the
Belle Haven neighborhood: ending poverty, racism, militarism and the devastation caused by unchecked climate change.
     Reverends William Barber and Liz Theoharis, who will be speaking at the Mass Meeting following the march, are articulate, inspiring speakers, and if you missed Rev. Barber this past January when he spoke to a packed Memorial Church at Stanford, don't miss this opportunity! I encourage you to march and attend the mass meeting afterwards at Glide Memorial Church and to encourage Menlo Park residents to support the PPC!
