Description: Location: Stanford Memorial Church, Palm Drive (top of the oval). The Church opens at 6:30 pm. Free to the public.

In commemoration of the 90th anniversary of Martin Luther King, Jr.'s birth, we present a public lecture by the Reverend Dr. William J. Barber II. This lecture will serve to inaugurate the Clarence B. Jones Fellowship at Stanford. Rev. Barber serves as the President of Repairers of the Breach. As stated in their mission statement, they are a non-profit organization that "declare[s] that the moral public concerns of our faith traditions are how our society treats the poor, women, LGBTQ people, children, workers, immigrants, communities of color, and the sick. [...]"Drawing on the unfinished work of the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.'s 1967/68 Poor People's Campaign, which called for a 'revolution of values,' Repairers of the Breach is working in partnership with the Kairos Center for Religions, Rights, and Social Justice, the Popular Education Project, and hundreds of local and national partners, to lead the Poor People's Campaign: A National Call for Moral Revival.

This multi-state movement has emerged from more than a decade of work by grassroots community and religious leaders, organizations, and movements fighting to end systemic racism, poverty, the war economy, environmental destruction, and other injustices."
