‘Moral Monday’ leader to speak at church Sunday

The Rev. William Barber II, architect of the “Moral Monday” protests in Raleigh, will speak at 5 p.m. Sunday at the Unitarian Universalist Church of Charlotte, 234 North Sharon Amity Road.

Barber, who is also president of the North Carolina NAACP, will speak about plans for how these protests against actions by the Republican-led state legislature will move forward.

Moral Monday participants and the public are invited to the event. Unitarian Universalist clergy and church members have been active in the protests. Some, including minister Jay Leach, have even been arrested in the General Assembly building. Tim Funk
