We Are Called to Be a Movement
In this single, rousing sermon, the celebrated Reverend William J. Barber II of the Poor People's Campaign calls for everyone--progressives, centrists, and conservatives alike--to come together, stand together, and lead a moral revival. To un-harden the heart of American democracy. To renounce the politics of rejection and greed and fight the ravages of poverty and the injustice of income inequality. To give hope the last word. A Co-Chair of the Poor People's Campaign, the Rev. Dr. William J. Barber II is a religious figure in a secular movement. He is celebrated for his social activism; his ability to speak to the hearts and minds of thousands of listeners, whether in a church or on a march; and an impassioned and selfless commitment to nonviolent change that recalls the greatest of leaders like Dr. Martin Luther King and Gandhi. And he is known for his way with a sermon. We Are Called to Be a Movement has the effect of a long poem, with a rhythm that stirs and inspires the reader. There are quotes from scripture, examples from history, and a simple, powerful honing of language and argument. Published intentionally like a pamphlet, with an immediacy, urgency, and low barrier to buying and sharing, the message is clear: It's time for change.
