MORAL MONDAYS. Rev. Dr. William Barber has been an activist for over 30 years. He is the leader of the Moral Mondays movement, a fusion of Whites, Blacks, Latinos, Asians, Workers, Students, Women, LGBTQ and all the people of North Carolina fighting the NC general assembly's regressive laws passed this year. These laws are mean-spirited and bad for the NC citizenry. Rev Barber is an inspiring and inspirational speaker. (See 2 videos)

Over 930 concerned and dedicated North Carolinians have been arrested supporting the Moral Monday movement. Every Monday since April of this year, thousands have joined Rev. Barber to protest and make our voices be heard. A "Change" is coming to North Carolina. Thanks to Rev. Barber's leadership, perseverance and dedication, and the fusion movement, we WILL OVERCOME. Forward together, Not one step back.

Please have the people's leader, Rev. Dr. William Barber and Rep. John Lewis have a major speaking role at the upcoming DC August 24th march.
