      Reviving Our Democracy: A Conversation With Rev. William J. Barber

      Nearly two years after Election Day 2016, Americans’ rights are under siege across the nation, from voter suppression and gerrymandering to police violence and attacks on immigrants. Yet there has also been a surge in civic action to protect these rights, and it is gathering dramatic momentum as we near the midterm elections. Join America’s preeminent civil rights leader Reverend William J. Barber, architect of North Carolina’s Moral Monday movement and co-chair of the Poor People's Campaign, and Mother Jones' senior reporter Ari Berman for an in-depth discussion about the current state of civil rights and democracy, and how we can energize both. Books will be available for sale; book signing to follow the main program. Sponsored by Ben & Jerry's, the San Francisco Foundation, and FreeSpeechTV. Special thanks to Peter and Mimi Buckley, Susie and Mark Buell, Loren and Anne Kieve, Michael and Jackie Klein, Tom Layton and Gyöngy Laky, Roger McNamee, Panta Rhea Fund, Rosenberg Foundation, Dick and Sue Wollack.
