Remember Rev. William Barber’s sermon at All Souls or his speech at the DNC? “The Revival: Time for a Moral Revolution of Values” is a national tour to redefine morality in American politics and challenge leaders of faith and moral courage to be more vocally opposed to harmful policies that disproportionately impact the poor, people who are ill, children, immigrants, communities of color, and religious minorities.

Sunday, September 11th, 7:00 – 9:00pm – Ralph Nader – A More Just Country For You
Ralph Nader will give a talk on his profound beliefs that “A More Just Country Can Be Yours….It’s Easier Than You Think!” Ralph believes it is up to everyone to develop alliances with the left and right for social justice, healthy children, affordable education, safe food and environments, reliable pensions and waging peace as a foreign policy.
