‘Moral Monday’ Raises Pressure To Pass COVID-19 Relief
A National drive for COVID-19 relief comes to Delaware’s capital today (Monday).
The Delaware Poor People’s Campaign has organized “Moral Monday, a national call for moral revival.” Similar caravans are taking place in 23 other states and Washington DC.
Participants plan to mourn the quarter-million American lives taken by coronavirus, and will call attention to the impact the pandemic has had on minority populations. A Mexican immigrant is expected to talk about her husband, a poultry industry worker in Sussex County who died this year of COVID-19 complications.
The Poor People’s campaign caravan takes place around Legislative Hall at about 2:30 this afternoon.
The group is also calling for a smooth presidential transition.
