Willie Baptist’s Remarks at the United Workers “Social Justice Theater Conference”


On Saturday, January 16th, participants in the Poverty Initiative’s 2010 Immersion Course took part in United Workers “Social Justice Theater Conference.” Along with more than 100 other participants, they listened to Willie Baptist’s opening remarks. United Workers has created a short video of this address. In this clip, Baptist talks about the present significance of Martin Luther King’s final vision of a Poor People’s Campaign and the need for us all to participate as leaders in reigniting a movement to end poverty led by the poor across color lines.
