More than 60 years ago Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. and other faith, labor, and civil rights leaders called for a “revolution of values” in America. They sought to build a broad movement that would bring together and raise up the voices of the poor and marginalized.
Dr. King believed that the poor could come together and transform all of society. But he understood that to do so a transformation would have to take place in the thinking and behavior of the majority of Americans.
