Watch the premier of the new program "Marching On," this Wednesday, November
4th at 7:30 PM on DUTV - Cable 54 Philadelphia.


THE SHOW:

"Marching On: The Kensington Welfare Rights Union & The Economic Human
Rights Campaign"

Marching On is a new, joint project of the Kensington Welfare Rights Union and
DUTV.  Using real life drama, facts, and statistics, Marching On discusses the
most pressing issues in the lives of many Philadelphia community members
today.  Host Joy Butts, Coordinator of the Economic Human Rights Monitoring
and Documentation Project, talks with an exciting and unusual array of guests
about welfare reform and TANF, city services, technology and globalization,
the 50th Anniversary of the United Nation's Universal Declaration of Human
Rights, grassroots organizing efforts nationally and in our own back yard, and
much more.  Within the first few episodes, viewers will discover that Marching
On is the only show of its kind to focus on these issues from the perspective
of poor and struggling families and youth themselves.  Check it out and watch
people you know working to build a society free from unemployment, hunger,
and homelessness.
