(38418) Michigan Poor People's Campaign, Demonstrations, 2018

A member of the clergy is arrested during the second of six planned demonstrations by the Michigan “Poor People’s Campaign.” The clergyman, along with 15 other protesters were arrested for blocking the entrance of the state Department of Health and Human Services.

The events, modeled after the Poor People’s Campaign of 1968, called for racial, economic, environmental and immigration justice. Michigan was one of 30 states participating in the six-week long project.
