On Saturday, November 12th, the NJ chapter of the National Action Network and Metropolitan Baptist Church will co-host what will be day 138 of the People’s Organization for Progress’ Daily People’s Campaign for Jobs, Peace, Education and Justice.

Metropolitan Baptist Church is one of the largest churches in Newark, under the leadership of Pastor David Jefferson Sr., who is also chairman of the NJ chapter of the National Action Network.

“We are pleased and honored to have Metro Baptist family with us,” said Lawrence Hamm, the conceptual architect for the Daily Peoples Campaign, excitedly.

“We hope their participation will inspire other churches to get involved,” he finished.

The rally will take place at Broad and Market Streets, downtown Newark from 12 noon-2pm.

The Daily People’s Campaign was launched on June 27thto dramatize the impact of draconian public policies on ordinary people. POP vows to host this daily action everyday for 381 days in honor of the epic Montgomery Bus Boycott that propelled a young Martin Luther King Jr. onto national consciousness! A ‘national jobs program’ is at the top of the list of the core issues driving the Campaign.

On Sundays, the Daily Campaign returns to the Lincoln Monument from 2-3pm…
