Explore some of the historical and modern-day models for building transformative moral movements and how we might re-engage and re-shape them in order to support freedom movements today. In this webinar, Dr. Barber will advocate for the reclamation of deeply-held ethical values and will offer suggestions about reaching a critical mass of people in order to build an effective social movement. Individuals and congregations alike will benefit from the insights shared here.
