Though they say Moral Mondays started as a resistance movement (“a struggle against”) they have evolved into a movement with an alternative vision and a program (“a movement for”). They have identified five principles that are “bigger than Democrat or Republican but good for the whole”: 1. Economic sustainability and ending poverty; 2. Education equality; 3. Healthcare for all; 4. Fairness in the criminal justice system; and 5. Voting Rights. We unite with the Moral Mondays movement because we see the necessity to build a movement in this country – not just in North Carolina. It is not enough to be an “ally” to our sisters and brothers of Moral Mondays. We must see that their problems are our problems and our problems are their problems. It is not possible for any of us, wherever we may be, to prevail over the injustices we face if we remain alone and isolated. What we’re up against is much too big and all-encompassing. We must see, as Dr. King once said, “an injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere” – and an injury to one is an injury to all. Our sisters and brothers in North Carolina, in their struggle, have emerged as leaders for us all. We are reminded of the role that the Montgomery bus boycott played in the early days of the Civil Rights Movement. It galvanized a movement but there would have been no movement to speak of had it remained in Montgomery. If we know our history, we know it is not enough for us to mobilize to a one-day rally in Raleigh. We must grasp the times in which live, and in so doing, we must see that a social movement is not only necessary… it is possible.
