About the Film
We Cried Power ​tells the story of a bold new social movement to end poverty in the United States, led by Rev. Dr. William J. Barber and Rev. Dr. Liz Theoharis. 140 million people in the United States are poor or low-wealth. In the wealthiest society in human history, nearly half of the population lives in poverty or is struggling to make ends meet and cannot afford a $400 emergency.

Inspired by Martin Luther King Jr.’s 1968 Poor People’s Campaign -Reverend Barber, a pastor from a small town in North Carolina, joined other clergies to launch a national movement led by poor and working people. For We Cried Power during the Summer of 2018, thousands of people – Black, white, Latino, First Nation, Asian, Jewish, Muslim and Christian, people not of faith, gay, straight, young and old – work together, picking up the baton from the freedom fighters of the Civil Rights Movement.
