84] – The Mass Poor People’s Assembly and Moral March on Washington will be the largest digital gathering of poor, dispossessed and impacted people, faith leaders, and people of conscience on June 20, 2020. The increasing urgency of a broad movement led by the poor and most impacted is more apparent every day. Now is the time to organize towards collective action to enact a moral agenda for the nation. As our ranks grow in the coming months due to COVID-19 and the ongoing crisis of poverty, building a platform for the plight, fight, and insight of the poor is even more urgent.  Marshal our collective voices to demonstrate the power of our communities. Demand that both major political parties address the interlocking injustices of systemic racism, poverty, ecological devastation, militarism and the distorted moral narrative of religious nationalism by implementing our Moral Agenda.

The Mass Poor People's Assembly and Moral March on Washington is a 2.5 hour program that will be broadcast on Sat., June 20 at 10 AM ET. There will be rebroadcasts at 6 PM ET, and again on Sun., June 21 at 6 PM ET. Go to Register at Visit to tune in. See

Start at 5424 Pulaski Hwy., Baltimore 21205-3412.  COVID 19 PRECAUTIONS WILL BE PRACTICED.  Stop Killing Us (SKU) addresses the issues of police brutality and community gun violence! This is a three week action that will take place rain or shine! Bring your posters, noise, and masks!  Step off promptly at 10 AM. The recent murder of George Floyd is a catalyst and so are all the other murders that have and will occur at the hands of law enforcement. The march (walk) will take place rain or shine. This is a self-sponsored action so you must provide your own expenses and necessities to participate. It’s not about how far you can walk. A block, a mile, an hour, it’s up to you.  The march will end at the Congressional Black Caucus, where a presentation will be given to prevent further police brutality. See

88] – On Sat., June 20 at noon, come to the 2nd BLACK LIVES MATTER  Bell-Tolling & 'Shout-Out' for Racial Justice in Historic Germantown, in front of the Town Square, at Germantown Avenue & Schoolhouse Lane. "NO JUSTICE, NO PEACE" or "END WHITE SUPREMACY; RESIST FASCISM, OUST TRUMP."  Dr.  Martin Luther King described the evil violent triplets of American society: Racism, Militarism, and Greed. True then, and imperial fact today.   Those attending Saturday's protest in Germantown will need to practice social distancing, wear a mask throughout the demonstration, and observe a nonviolent group discipline. Call Melissa Elliott, Germantown Friends Meeting, 215-951-2235.  Check out

89] – On Sat., June 20 from 2:30 to 4:30 PM, Our Revolution is meeting and the topic of discussion is Life During and After COVID-19: Creating a Green Recovery.  It's likely that COVID-19 will permanently alter our society and our economy. Businesses and entire industries will fail, and new ones will arise from the ashes. As we rebuild, we must reject the narrative of returning to a "normal" that was failing many people and destroying our planet. Hear from speakers from and the Sunrise Movement Baltimore Hub. Register here at link will be sent to registrants by email.

90] – On Sat., June 20 from 3 to 8 PM, get over to Pride in the Park, hosted by S.H.E. Productions, Patterson Park 21224.  If it weren’t for Black Trans Women and other POC in the Queer community, there would be no Pride Month.  Never forget Stonewall started as a riot.

Get together and raise some money to support the FAMILY because #blacktranslivesmatter.  This is a casual pop-up party in the park. Bring your snacks. Bring your drinks. Bring your fashion. Bring your music. Bring your allies. Bring your glitter. Bring a blanket. Bring chairs. Bring the positivity and fun. But most importantly, bring your wallets and your desire to make a difference! Also- bring a mask and your common sense. Social distancing is encouraged. Consider a donation to The Okra Project. Look at See

93] – The Trump Administration is again beating the war drums.  Most recently, the target is Iran.  Should the Trump administration initiate an act of war against Iran, consider joining us. It is a violation of U.S. law for the Trump Administration to attack a country that has not attacked us, as only Congress can declare war. The Trump administration is nevertheless beating the war drums for war against Iran and Venezuela. Should a war criminal, John Bolton, convince Trump to attack either of these countries, such a military strike would demand an immediate and unequivocal response from us to show that we will not tolerate his abuse of power.

   Let's mobilize to show that we the people will not tolerate another military adventure, which would be bound to have profound negative consequences. If a military strike against Iran or Venezuela takes place, then meet at 33rd and N. Charles St., Baltimore 21218. If the attack is before 2 PM local time, then the event will begin at 5 PM, local time. If the attack occurs after 5 PM local time, then the event will begin at 5 PM, local time, the following day. Contact Max at 410-323-1607 or mobuszewski2001 at Comcast dot net.

“One is called to live nonviolently, even if the change one works for seems impossible. It may or may not be possible to turn the US around through nonviolent revolution. But one thing favors such an attempt: the total inability of violence to change anything for the better" - Daniel Berrigan
