Protesters with the Poor Peoples Campaign rally in Washington, DC to fight for their cause.

Representatives from the New York Chapter of the Poor People’s Campaign Arelis Figueroa and Katrina Zezza came to Masters to lead a workshop during the school’s Martin Luther King Day Jr. celebration. Originally created in 1968 by Dr. King and the Southern Christian Leadership Conference to gain economic justice for the poor in the United States, the campaign started up again to continue fighting for their cause. TBN’s Executive Producer Carol Queiroz sits down with Figueroa and Zezza to discuss the importance of the campaign, what went on during their workshop and why more youth should get involved in the organization.
