The National People’s Campaign was initially formed in 1995 in order to combat the’ racism and death penalty. We recognized that these initiatives were a must in today America. Furthermore, we regarded one manifestation of a much larger, ongoing threat to the rights of workers, people of color, women, immigrants, the youngs communitiy, and other disenfranchised groups.
The strategic conception of the NPC is that independent, mass struggle is the most effective way to resist the attack upon people’s rights. We are not just fighting for our rights; we believe that society needs a new Bill of Rights — a genuine people’s contract — that would guarantee social justice, a decent paying job, free health care, education, childcare and housing for all members of society.
