"When we all heard George Floyd say “I can’t breathe,” it was as if the democracy itself took a collective gasp and so many people who’ve seen so much death said, “I can’t breathe either.”

 

Listen to the Rev. Dr. William Barber's full sermon, ‘America, Accepting Death is Not an Option Anymore!' given live from the National Cathedral in Washington D.C. on Sunday, June 14th.

'We are Called to Be a Movement'

 

Rev. Dr. Williams Barber's rousing sermon 'We are Called to Be a Movement," implores us to come together and renounce the politics of rejection, division, and greed – to lift up the common good, move up to higher ground, and revive the heart of democracy. It is now available as a published book from Workman Publishing.

 

Forward together, not one step back!

Rev. Dr. William Barber and Rev. Dr. Liz Theoharis
