Rally at West Capital Park Continues for Fifth Week

NYS Poor People's Campaign

The Poor People's Campaign enters its 5th week of protests Monday.

The campaign plans a rally at the Capitol Monday afternoon, where advocates will call on lawmakers to enact policies for a living wage, the right for all workers to join a union, fully-funded anti-poverty programs, and free tuition at public colleges. 

The campaign also plans to respond to an over $1,400 bill it received from the city of Albany for rally security over the past few weeks. 

A spokesperson says the campaign plans to present a bill of its own to the city and to New York State.
