Two women, one of whom is likely a sister from the Immaculate Heart of Mary Motherhouse in Monroe, Michigan, is arrested during a demonstration by the Michigan “Poor People’s Campaign.” Sixteen 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.
