Rev. William J.
After the success of the Moral Monday protests, the pastor is attempting to revive Martin Luther King, Jr.’s final—and most radical—campaign.
The Poor People's Campaign to battle poverty was Martin Luther King's most radical project. Now William Barber and Liz Theoharis are calling for a moral revival with the New Poor People's Campaign.
From Genesis to Revelation, the Bible proclaims justice and abundance for the poor. Yet these powerful passages about poverty are frequently overlooked and misinterpreted.
Yes, we must radically transform policing in America. But we cannot stop there. We must transform the pervasive systems of economic and carceral injustice that are choking our common life.
“This moment requires us to push into the national consciousness, but not from the top down, but from the bottom up.”
The nation’s problem isn’t that we don’t have enough money. It’s that we don’t have the moral capacity to face what ails society.
Why Rev. William Barber thinks we need a moral revolution.
Barber makes clear his belief that the role of Christians is to call for social justice and allow the “rejected stones” of American society—the poor, people of color, women, LGBTQIA people, immigrants, religious minorities—to lead the way.
