Moral Monday: The Bessemer 6000 and Building the Labor Movement from the South

Start: 2021-03-29 15:00:00 UTC Eastern Daylight Time (US & Canada) (GMT-04:00)

This is a virtual event

Monday is the voting deadline for the Bessemer 6000, the Amazon warehouse workers in Alabama engaged in a historic labor struggle who we heard from last week.

Join us again this Moral Monday for a recap of that struggle and a conversation with Dr. Robin DG Kelley, one of the nation’s leading public intellectuals; a historian, professor, activist and author who has dedicated his life to studying and supporting freedom movements across the nation, and especially in the South. He will be joined by Rev. Dr. William J. Barber, II who will draw on the lessons of the multi-racial fusion movements in North Carolina and beyond.

Monday is also the beginning of Holy Week in the Christian tradition, where we remember Jesus turning over the tables of the money changers in the temple because they were exploiting the people. The moral outrage that characterized that first Moral Monday is carried forward in our work today.

The moral fusion organizing going on in Bessemer has lit a spark for the rest of the country and the world. Join us on Monday for this timely and critical conversation as we continue to heal the heart and soul of the nation.

Forward together, not one step
