As all of you know I (David Bland) am totally committed to addressing the harm and disrespect which the leadership of our state and country are doing to the poor and marginalized of our nation. As a member of Board of Directors of Repairers of the Breach we are committed to the renewal of the poor People’s campaign which is the legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King. I would hope that all of you would consider becoming members of our information sharing group and as opportunities arise join us in demonstrating to the nation our concern for the displaced. Repairers is a 501(c)(3) corporation and if any of you would care to support our efforts financially please contact me and I will provide you all of the necessary banking information.

Dear Friends,You are receiving this message because we have worked together in some capacity over the past four years during my time with the North Carolina NAACP.I have recently joined the organizing team at Repairers of the Breach, an organization that formed last year under Rev. Barber’s leadership. As he transitions out of his role as the NC NAACP State Conference president, he will be directing his focus to help build a new Poor People’s Campaign through his role with Repairers of the Breach and alongside a number of other organizations across the country.I am thrilled to continue to work with him in this effort to fundamentally change our nation and address systemic poverty, racism and the war economy.This campaign will necessarily be a multi-year undertaking. During this first phase, we are building towards massive direct action across the nation in the Spring of 2018.If you are interested in learning more about how to get involved with the Poor People’s Campaign, please fill out this form.I’ll keep you informed if an event is happening in your area and as we get closer to next spring, you’ll receive information on how to get more involved.
