Advocates for the Working Class

King: King’s Poor People’s Campaign addressed issues of economic justice and attention to poverty and was the inspiration for the March on Washington.

Obama: A huge point on the Obama campaign platform was a proposed tax cut for 95% of working families and significant tax relief for the middle class.
