Press Release: Urban Triage Inc. is thrilled to announce the Supporting Healthy Black Youth Campaign Moral Walk: Visible Youth Mobilization for the Poor Campaign in Washington, D.C. on June 18, 2022, to celebrate the 19 June and Black Liberation. In partnership with Milwaukee Poor People’s Campaign, Breaking Barriers, Community Task Force MKE, All Of Us Or None and Tech*Niques, mobilizing young people in Madison and Milwaukee.
On June 18, 2022, Mass Poor People’s & Low-Wage Workers’ Assembly & Moral March on Washington and to the Polls will be a transformative and disruptive generational gathering of poor and low-income people, heads of state, religious communities, moral allies, unions, and partner organizations.
This is NOT just a day of action. It is a statement of a continuing and committed moral movement to 1) build power, 2) change the political discourse, and 3) build real policies to fully address poverty and low wealth. The Assembly is a focal point of the organization from fall 2021 to summer 2022 and will propel us towards the 2022 elections. Along the way, we will do MORE: Mobilize, Organize, Register, Educate, Engage and Empower people for a movement that votes!
Our goal is to raise $60,000 to support 46 youth and 10 adult chaperones

Coming back to Wisconsin from a historic moment and a shared movement to build on this momentum – organizing, mobilizing and collaborating with local youth and leaders, empowering and inspiring transformation within our community, a young and a family at once. Through advocacy, education and trauma recovery. We break down barriers and create new paths and hope for the future.
