Rev. Barber on August 21 - Topeka Kansas

We have been advised that on Monday, August 21st  at 7:00 pm, the Rev. Dr. William Barber will speak at the First United Methodist Church in Topeka located at 600 SW Topeka Boulevard.  As head of the NAACP of North Carolina, Rev. Barber led the “Moral Mondays” resistance to the right-wing agenda of cutting social services, disenfranchising voters, and the re-segregation of North Carolina.  His organization, Repairers of the Breach worked diligently in the 2016 election cycle to unseat the undemocratic forces which had taken over the state’s government. 

Now Rev. Barber is stepping down as head of the NAACP to take his work to the national level, targeting states like Kansas which have seen the social safety net removed.  This new national initiative aims to end poverty and begin what Barber calls “a national moral revival.” This new Poor People’s Campaign will pick up where the Rev. Martin Luther King Jr. left off 50 years ago when he turned his focus to uniting poor people across lines of race and geography and pushing their priorities onto the federal agenda.

Please consider attending Rev. Barber’s speech and mass rally on August 21st  and join with the Kansas Peoples Agenda to build a broad coalition to take up a campaign at the state level.  The campaign, which launches in partnership with the Kairos Center at Union Theological Seminary in New York City, will bring together organizations with a longstanding commitment to confronting poverty and inequality—including local and national groups. Barber has stated that a task force made up of poor people and economists, theologians, and other experts will release a report in September called “The Souls of Poor Folks” that will lay out the campaign’s agenda.

The Kansas People's Agenda (KPA) played an important role in rolling back the Brownback tax plan which had brought economic turmoil to the state and directly harmed many Kansans with limited incomes and special needs.  Following a rally at the beginning of the 2016 Legislative Session that saw over 700 people fill the Capitol rotunda and then visit with state legislators, the KPA continued to press for a return to a more just tax code in which the burden of the state was shared by all.
