"We Are Called to Be a Movement"
Spring Miller Lecture in Public Understanding with Rev. Dr. William J. Barber II

For years the Rev. Dr. William J. Barber II of the Poor People’s Campaign has been one of the most gifted moral fusion organizers, strategists and orators in the country. As an indispensable figure in the public policy and public theology landscape, he believes it’s time for everyone who cares about the state of our nation to heed the call and join forces to redeem the soul of America. It's time to come together and renounce the politics of rejection, division and greed, and to lift up the common good, move up to higher ground and revive the heart of democracy. During his inspiring keynote, Rev. Barber makes an impassioned argument with a message that could not be clearer: It's time for change and the time needs you.

The Rev. Dr. William J. Barber II is President and Senior Lecturer of Repairers of the
Breach, Co-Chair of the Poor People's Campaign: A National Call For Moral Revival, Bishop with The Fellowship of Affirming Ministries, Pastor of Greenleaf Christian Church (Disciples of Christ), Goldsboro, NC, for the past 29 years, and Professor in the Practice of Public Theology and Public Policy and Founding Director of the Center for Public Theology and Public Policy at Yale Divinity School.
