The rallies planned by current organizers will address today's major social and economic problems in a series of weekly themes. Barber is the founder of the Moral Monday movement, a coalition of faith leaders and activists who routinely protested poverty and discrimination in Raleigh, North Carolina. He cited statistics that indicate 46 percent of Kentucky residents - 2 million people - are poor or low-income; 76 percent of those are children; 47 percent are women; 65 percent are people of color; 42 percent are white people, according to Gillett. But advocates for poor Ohioans say the problems that existed are still common.

"All over this country, we continue to see what is not often seen or talked about in our politics, in our political debates, or even in the media", Barber told Democracy Now.

In total, hundreds of people were arrested across seven states and Washington. "We are committed to lifting and deepening the leadership of those most affected by poverty, so we will speak up for our children". "Systematic poverty that has been created, not because we're lazy or don't want to work, but because of politicians who block a living wage". "The goal is to bring more and more Americans into the movement and help make things better on all levels for everyone".
