Building a moral fusion movement

I know a lot of you will think that you don't have an hour to listen to Rev. William Barber's speech at Netroots Nation. The media ignored it because he's not likely to be a presidential candidate in 2016. But if you want to be inspired to build a fusion movement that takes our political discussion above the snake line to the moral high ground, I suggest you find the time. Lordy...this man is just what our spirits need these days!

  1. Sweet Holy Hannah! Thank you, Nancy. Uplifting and explains so much. What a genius speech. Y'all, every last one of you need to watch this. We all get above the Snake Line.

  2. Thank you, Nancy for posting Rev. barber's whole speech. It's definitely worth listening to all of it.

  3. Glad to see that you posted this Nancy - Rev Barber was (as always) powerful. Sadly, the speech - even though he was the opening keynote speaker was not well attended.

    1. Unfortunately, that doesn't surprise me with this group. They would be asked to actually have to do some work for a policy they want, instead of complaining that some politician isn't "progressive" enough.

      Denise, I hope you are okay. I always looked forward to reading your wonderful essays on DK, before I stopped going there about three years ago.
