40 Days of Direct Action

Timeline and Description of 40 Days of Direct Action In the spring of 2018 the Campaign will launch by engaging in 40 Days of Moral Action across the nation. By engaging in highly publicized, non-violent moral fusion direct action, over a 6-week period in at least 30 states and the District of Columbia between May 13 and June 23, the Campaign will force a serious national examination of the enmeshed evils of systemic racism, systemic poverty, ecological devastation and the war economy during a key election year while strengthening and connecting informed and committed grassroots leadership in every state, increasing their power to continue this fight long after June 2018. During these 40 days of Moral Action, the Campaign will push forward a concrete moral agenda, and draw on art, music, popular education and religious traditions to challenge the nation’s distorted moral narrative.


Each week during the 40 days will focus on different themes:

  1. Week 1 (May 13-19) - Somebodies Hurting Our People: Child poverty, Women, and People with Disabilities

  2. Week 2 (May 20-26) – Linking Systemic Racism and Poverty: Voting Rights and Immigration

  3. Week 3 (May 27-June 2) - The War Economy, Veterans, Education and Our National Priorities

  4. Week 4 (June 3-9) - Ecological Devastation and Health

  5. Week 5 (June 10-16) – Everybody’s Got the Right to Live: Jobs, Income and Housing

  6. Week 6 (June 17-22) – A New and Unsettling Force
