Arizona State University’s Center for the Study of Race and Democracy will feature influential civil rights and social justice leader Rev. William J. Barber II at its annual Delivering Democracy program on Saturday, April 17.
Barber, a courageous champion of social justice and human rights, is known and deeply respected for his unwavering intentional and deeply collaborative advocacy for underserved and marginalized populations across the nation. His work and example have done much to model purposeful engagement and to demonstrate the deep power of purposeful collaboration and partnerships. His calls for a moral democracy underscore the attention to humanity that should transcend partisanship and that can lead to justice for all.
The center’s annual Delivering Democracy program creates a powerful forum for visionary speakers to discuss critical issues of race and democracy with the local community as well as with a national and global audience. The program will feature a dialogue with Barber facilitated by Lois Brown, director of the center.
In advance of the program with Barber, the center is hosting a weeklong virtual community resource fair, which will enable direct engagement with community organizations in and beyond Arizona.
