Moral Monday: People of Faith & Moral Consciousness Making Holy Trouble

April 5 @ 4:00 pm - 5:00 pm

Declaring there are times for a clear moral outcry and a time when religious leaders must sound the alarm, join the Poor People’s Campaign on April 5th, for Moral Monday: People of Faith & Moral Consciousness Making Holy Trouble in Washington, D.C., at 4 pm ET/1 pm PT.

Some 100 people of faith and moral conscience will join campaign co-chairs, Bishop William J. Barber II and Rev. Dr. Liz Theoharis, for a rally and news conference where they will discuss why they are standing for voting rights and living wages and address how the filibuster, an arcane and racist tactic, obstructs the passing of moral and just policies.

Forward together, not one step back!

The Poor People’s Campaign and Repairers of the Breach have led peaceful protests and actions every Monday since 2013. Drawing on the unfinished work of the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.’s 1967/68 Poor People’s Campaign, which called for a “revolution of values.”

“We declare that the moral public concerns of our faith traditions are how our society treats the poor, women, LGBTQ people, children, workers, immigrants, communities of color, and the sick. Our deepest moral traditions point to equal protection under the law, the desire for peace within and among nations, the dignity of all people, and the responsibility to care for our common home.”

As Rev. William Barber, NAACP North Carolina chair and leader of Moral Mondays, put it, “This is not about right or left; it’s about right or wrong.”
