“I come tonight to tell you what your calling is. If things are mighty low, the government is on a path to destruction, a road to destruction, then you’re calling, once you find it out, is to stand up!
Those of us who love freedom and justice are being called in this nation and called in this state to raise it up from the lowlands of injustice and division, to the high grounds of justice and community. It’s time to go to higher ground. That’s why we must march. That’s why we must mobilize.”
-Dr. Rev. William Barber, II, at the New Covenant United Holy Church in Burlington, NC, 1.23.14
