Eleven protesters were issued criminal citations Monday when they blocked traffic in front of the State House in Annapolis, an orchestrated act of civil disobedience that is part of the Maryland Poor People's Campaign.

One woman, confined to a wheelchair, spoke of the discrimination faced by the disabled and another, who grew up as the child of an imprisoned parent, talked about the challenges of "systematic poverty" and justice reform. Barber is the founder of the Moral Monday movement, a coalition of faith leaders and activists who routinely protested poverty and discrimination in Raleigh, North Carolina. "Coretta Scott King said that violence is not just what happened to her husband when he was shot, but also what happens when people are denied the necessities they need to live", said Savina Martin, co-chair of the Massachusetts Poor People's Campaign, in a statement. The Michigan Poor People's Campaign launched on Monday at the state Capitol. It says the two were among protesters arrested after standing in the middle of a street.
