Mother Jones Presents: Reviving Our Democracy with Rev. William Barber

Free Speech TV is proud to partner with Mother Jones as the exclusive broadcast partner for a candid conversation with senior reporter Ari Berman and America’s preeminent civil rights leader, Rev. Dr. William J. Barber — architect of North Carolina’s Moral Monday movement and co-chair of the Poor People’s Campaign — about the current state of civil rights and democracy, and how we can energize both.

Nearly two years after Election Day 2016, Americans’ rights are under siege across the nation, from voter suppression and gerrymandering to police violence and attacks on immigrants. Yet there has also been a surge in civic action to protect these rights, and it is gathering dramatic momentum as we near the midterm elections.

Filmed live at First Congregational Church of Berkeley in Northern California, Rev. Barber and Berman discussed Barber’s work with the new Poor People’s Campaign: A National Call for Moral Revival, as well as the urgency of building a new moral majority that is dedicated to intersectional liberation, and the abolition of poverty, systemic racism, ecological devastation, and the war economy.
