William J. Barber II

  • Title
    Pastor and Activist
  • Affiliation
    The Poor People's Campaign

Barber sees such issues as poverty, racism, and voter suppression as moral matters, with unethical treatment of people as their common theme. His “Moral Monday” protests at North Carolina’s State House have drawn thousands of marchers in recent years. Last year he revived the Poor People’s Campaign, originally launched by Martin Luther King Jr., to take his message nationwide.
