The Michigan Poor People's Campaign heads to Lansing again on Monday.

It will be the fourth week for the group to rally at the Capitol.

This time the focus is on ecological devastation, right to clean affordable water, housing, a living wage, the right to organize, education, inequality, and the nation's distorted moral narrative, according to their press release.

They say that there are initiatives happening in over 30 state capitols including D.C. on Monday.

Leading these rallies are those impacted by the issues, allies to the issues, and clergymen.

Those participating say they will engage in non-violent, direct action, education, and voter mobilization.

Participants will gather at First Presbyterian Church, 510 W. Ottawa at noon and march to the State Capitol at 1:30 p.m. for a rally, followed by "non-violent direct action" at 2:00 PM.
