Building Bridges: Your Community and Labor Report
Produced by Ken Nash and Mimi Rosenberg
Ecological Devastation is Immoral
The Rev. William J. Barber II, president of the North Carolina
NAACP, architect of the Moral Monday protest movement, and
Repairers of the Breach, his most recent books include
âForward Together: A Moral Message for the Nationâ and
âThe Third Reconstruction: Moral Mondays, Fusion Politics
and the Rise of a New Justice Movement.â
Former Vice President Al Gore, currently Chairman of the Climate
Reality Project. Author of "An Inconvenient Truth: The Planetary
Emergency of Global Warming and What We Can Do About It"
Weâre heading to Belews Lake, North Carolina, right beside the Duke Energy plant, its smoke stakes spewing coal ash amidst this otherwise bucolic landscape, where we listened to former Vice President Al Gore brought there by the Rev. Dr. William Barber and his Poor Peoples Campaign to highlight one of the four pillars of the Poor Peoples Campaign - ecological devastation that is inextricably linked to the perpetuation of poverty.
Earlier this year Rev. Barber announced an effort by faith and moral leaders to carry forward Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.âs dream of a Poor Peopleâs Campaign, working across the country to alleviate the triad forces of poverty, militarism, and racism that Dr. King knew were poisoning the country then and still threaten us today.
Rev. William Barber noted, the battle for civil rights and the battle for economic rights are two wings of the same word.
