I believe the past is relevant, sometimes more than others of course. In most cases we are seeing history being repeated, so it is most relevant.

Moral Mondays upcoming events and actions:

Moral Mondays founder Rev. William Barber is traveling to Indiana to speak at Christian Theological Seminary on February 3rd at 7pm. The event is free and open to the public.

imageMoral Mondays began as protests in North Carolina, United States of America. Led by religious progressives, the protests are in response to several actions by the government of North Carolina which was elected into office in 2013 and are characterized by civil disobedience - specifically entering the state legislature building to be peacefully arrested. The movement protests many wide ranging issues under the blanket claim of unfair treatment, discrimination, and adverse effects of government legislation on the citizens of North Carolina. The protests in North Carolina launched a grassroots social justice movement that, in 2014, spread to Georgia and South Carolina, and then to other U.S. states such as Illinois and New Mexico.

The second Indiana Moral Mondays legislative action is on February 8th. As usual, we'll wear yellow and meet in the South Atrium on the Third Floor of the Statehouse. Then, join us for the next IMM general meeting on February 13th 10am - noon. We'll be discussing upcoming legislative actions and prepare for the Spring. We're sending out a follow-up email with necessary details for the action and meeting this week!
