NCEBCTalkRadio Recording Live from Rev. Dr. William Barber's "Building A Movement from the Ground Up" Workshop at the Jubilee Celebration in Selma, AL

Monday March 10 @ 10 AM on NCEBCTalkRadio

Rev. Dr. William Barber is leading a growing movement called the Moral Monday Movement in North Carolina that has now spread to several southern states. From the moral framework of the scriptures and state constitutions, the Moral Movement is an indigenously-led, state-based, state government – focused, deeply moral, deeply constitutional, anti-racist, anti-poverty, pro-justice, pro-labor, transformative, fusion movement. 


Hundreds of thousands of people have fused together a coalition of goodwill, a nonviolent volunteer army of love, to oppose state legislature’s heartless, ideologically driven agendas. The movement is based in a southern context that takes seriously the issue of race.  As a movement born in the south, the Moral Monday Movement is rightfully aligned with the values of anti-racism and anti-poverty. 

Rooted in hope (not fear) the Moral Movement is fighting for:

  • Pro-labor, anti-poverty policies that insure economic sustainability;
  • Well-funded, quality public education for all;
  • Health care access and environmental justice across all the state's communities;
  • Equality in the criminal justice system and ensure equality under the law for every person, regardless of race, class, creed, documentation or sexual preference;
  • Protect and expand voting rights for people of color, women, immigrants, the elderly and students to safeguard fair democratic representation.

The voices in the Moral Movement are of a diverse (Young, Old, White, Black, Latino, LGBT, Rich and Poor) people concerned with state laws that restrict, punish and disenfranchise its citizens.
