The Revival: Time for a Moral Revolution of Values

Our socio-political process has been hijacked. Far too much of our national political discourse and activity have been poisoned by the dominance of regressive immoral and hateful policy directed toward communities of color, the poor, the sick, our children, immigrants, women, voting rights, the environment, and religious minorities. We still have too much racism, materialism and militarism.

We cannot remain silent. Our country is in need of a moral revolution of values to champion the sacred values of love, justice and mercy in the public square.

The Revival: Time for A Moral Revolution of Values, led by the Rev. Dr. William J. Barber II and the Rev. Dr. James A. Forbes, Jr., aims to be the catalyst for a resurgence of moral political activism among people of conscience and faith leaders. The two pastor/scholars have been invited to 15 states-Alabama, Georgia, Indiana, Minnesota, Mississippi, Missouri, New York, North Carolina, South Carolina, Texas, Wisconsin, Tennessee, Ohio, Oklahoma, and Virginia-including the nation's capitol for the first leg of the tour. Joining the pastors in selected sites will be faith leaders the Rev. Traci Blackmon and Sister Simone Campbell.
