Yes! I got to interview the founder of Moral Mondays, Rev. Dr. William Barber last night. It was a very long day, but I would have waited all night to speak with the man who is inspiring people to come together in a Moral Fusion Movement around the subjects of voting rights, women’s rights, immigrants rights, labor rights and more.
Dr. Barber spelled out the Moral Agenda, which includes
- Pro labor, anti poverty policy
- educational equality
- health care for all
- fairness in our criminal justice system
- the call to hook up and organize around protecting and expanding the rights mentioned above.
As you may know, I got to see Barber speak last week at the AFT convention and became a fan girl! He spoke here at Netroots Nation last night and I got to speak with him afterwards. Listen to today’s show to hear the interview (and I’ll eventually upload the interview as a standalone podcast too!).
Also on today’s show, I spoke with Congressman Keith Ellison, Credo’s Becky Bond, Damon Silvers of the AFL-CIO, economist Stephanie Kelton and a host of others…
Tomorrow, I’ll be back on radio row recording more interviews to air next week when I get home. Already in the can- a conversation with Sandra Fluke!
I’ll talk with you Monday from back home in FloriDUH.. radio or not!
