Please join clergy, activist, organized labor, and service providers to discuss local priorities for a Moral Monday Movement in Baltimore. Founded in North Carolina, and closely associated with the Rev. William Barber, the Moral Monday Movement is a multi-issue coalition of moral leaders, and progressives organized to fight for the living wage, health care, social programs, police brutality and more! Since it's founding in 2013, through the efforts of Rev. Barber and others, the movement has spread to Alabama, Georgia, South Carolina, Florida, Indiana, and Missouri. Rev. Barber has had interest in brining his progressive movement to Baltimore since the uprising surrounding the brutal police killing of Freddy Gray, and since the Mayor's veto of the living wage, the Governors attack on worker sick leave, and development projects that put profits over the interest of the poor and working class, we think that now is the time for a Moral Movement in Baltimore. What the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. referred to as "the urgency of now requires it".
