“Voter suppression is sin! So to supress the vote is to, in fact, suggest that you have entered a God space and you can determine other people’s reality and to suppress the vote is to suggest that other people do not have the same imago dei — image of God in you.” -Rev. Dr. William J. Barber, II testifying on “Voter Suppression in Minority Communities: Learning from the Past to Protect Our Future” ...
Speaking truth for understanding!
Republicans still believe in "Divine Right." They still believe the wealthy should be able to control the government, the military, and the police.
HERE FOR THIS! SPEAK IT REV! ✊🏼‼💓
People were KILLED for the Right to Vote!

I'm a 58 year old longtime constituent of Bernie's and can tell you that he is the real deal. This #SandersSis thinks he is the best public servant I've ever known.
Thank you for joining the Poor People's Csmpaign! Wonderful cause!
OMG! This is so sad! The pharmaceutical industry is controlling the Gov't.
Respect to Rev. Barber and the Poor People's Campaign! #Bernie2020
What a great and necessary conversation! Thank you Bernie and Thank You Poor People's Campaign!
I 💗 you Rev. Barber! Thank you for your dedication to environmental justice.
This is the most informative town hall I have seen. Thank you Bernie and Rev. Barber. Very meaningful conversation.
Praise the highest for this man! Compassion abounds for this country!
Thank you for coming, Bernie. I know you're tired. Thank you and Rev. Barber for caring.
Bernie, you give me hope. Hope in a better country and a bright future. Thank you, thank you, thank you
Thank you Bernie for all you do for us! Thank you also Vermont for giving us Bernie!
Great Job Bernie! Continue to fight for the people! We love you! #TexasForBernie
This RN supports Medicare for All and Bernie Sanders 🔥
Good to see y'all in here
Every vote matters !! Let’s make this revolution happen and take our country back, so that it works for ALL of us! Bernie is the first candidate who ever made me feel hopeful for our future! 😃🔥❤️🇺🇸
Thank you President Sanders for your steadfast compassion and commitment to addressing these tough issues and lifting people up so they can live with fairness and dignity! 🔥❤️🇺🇸
Watching from Australia, I wish you all the most luck in your endeavour to secure the natural right of access to nutrition, healthcare, and shelter
I am here at Greenleaf Christian Church in Goldsboro with Rev. William Barber, Senator Bernie Sanders, and others.
You have already made a change! Thank you for your activism. You are a hero and you have my vote.
Support the Poor People's Campaign to make this World a better Place.
People love Bernie. If elected he will be the most beloved president since FDR!
Love this compassionate and civil conversation. So different from the debates and some of the town halls. These are real people. Not people being paid to sit in an audience.
"People want to talk about faith. The God I serve cured all the lepers and never charged them a copay." Best quote.
I am a pledged delegate candidate for Bernie Sanders!! Proud of it!
“Black preachers’ opinions about politics are never more eagerly sought after than they will be for the next couple of weeks. But now is not the time for preachers to endorse their favorite candidate. What's needed now is a clear demand.” -Rev. Dr. William J. Barber, II

i respect Rev Barber’s decision to stay above simple endorsements, but let’s not pretend that the Sanders campaign isn’t the diverse working class coalition centering on the poor that we’ve seen in our lifetimes.
As missionary and ordained minister, I can't officially endorse a candidate. This is a refreshing take on promoting progress in a spiritually darkened world.
Thank you! Ethical preachers do not tell their congregants who to vote for.
You are very right Rev Barber . Good for you and the PPC ! I do hope people see that Bernie’s ideas and platform are just about the same as the PPC!
There is ONE clear candidate standing up for poor people, indeed damn near the only one in years that has. Bernie Sanders. This is a rather..........slippery statement by Rev. Barber, IMO.
Rich and middle class people need to repent of our bigotry and apathy.
Yes Dr Barber, I support Joe Biden. His record in support of African American speaks for itself.
#BernieSanders2020 is the only candidate standing on the moral high ground.
Trump just threaten to take heat away from poor to pay for Coronavirus. Cant ACLU sue him again?
You are so right, Dr. Barber!
TRUTH, REV. DR. BARBER
Yes, yes, yes!!!
What's needed is to keep their ASHES OUT UNTIL THEY ENDORSE A BLACK AGENDA NOT A MINORITY AGENDA....
Fick Bernie and any other that don't have a Black AGENDA for us...

.@BernieSanders brings up point about #DemDebate to #FightFor15 workers Keenan and Sara "did [poverty] even come close to being discussed last night? Not even close. Not. Even. Close."
Bernie Sanders just now at the Poor People’s Campaign says he will end the “service tip wage” discrepancy where those who earn tips get paid half the minimum wage.
Under Bernie’s legislation, he says the the “service wage” will also rise to meet the $15 minimum wage *at least*
