Do we all need a Moral Monday movement?

Do we all need a Moral Monday movement?

This is a great article on its own… I do concur with the statement: :”Rev. William Barber, a key organizer of the movement, has grounded this new movement in history, suggesting that the South is in the midst of the “third reconstruction.” A new ‘reconstruction’ since none of the others seems to have lasted or was totally effective….. Right ON
I must add:
Now we are in the midst of a third reconstruction, according to Barber. Political mobilizations today, like those of the first reconstruction, are based on what was called in the 1860s “fusion” politics; that is bringing all activists — Black, Brown, white, gay/straight, workers, environmentalists — together.

Fusion politics assumes that only a mass movement built on everyone’s issues can challenge the billionaire economic elites…  (from the Harry Targ blog)
