ReVolutionary Love: CompLete the dream

As we mark the 50th anniversary of the assassination of Dr. King, our nation’s leading civil rights activists and faith leaders gather for the conference, Revolutionary Love: Complete the Dream. Rev. Dr. Otis Moss, Ruby Sales, Rev. Dr. William Barber, Sister Simone Campbell, Rev. Brian McLaren, Valarie Kaur, Stosh Cotler, Rev. Traci Blackmon and Rev. Dr. Jacqui Lewis are among the confirmed speakers. As we seek to work against racism, poverty and militarism, we need Beloved Community and practical tools to create a more perfect union. We are the ones we’ve been waiting for.
