Poor People's Campaign Freedom School Bus Tour
April 4-9, the NYS Poor People's Campaign traveled across Western and Central New York on a National Emergency Freedom School Bus Tour, where we learned about past and present struggles for justice in Buffalo, Geneseo, Elmira, Enfield, Ithaca, Auburn, and Syracuse. Our trip shined a light on the emergencies facing our communities - including farmworker exploitation, food insecurity, mass incarceration, and displacement - as well as the rich history of abolitionist struggle in our state.
Check out press coverage of our Elmira Poor People's Hearing, visit to the Harriet Tubman house in Auburn, and tour of Syracuse and see photos and a recap of each stop on the NY PPC blog.
We're also holding a report-back webinar on Tuesday, April 30 at 7 pm. RSVP to hear more about what we experienced and what it means for continuing to build a movement in New York.
