The Senior Constituency Group of the AFL-CIO

On behalf of the entire APRI family, we offer our heartfelt congratulations and gratitude to The Rev. Dr. William J. Barber II, who has accepted the invitation to be Consecrated as a Bishop and become a part of The College of Affirming Bishops for his work with Repairers of the Breach, Inc. and Justice Lives In Ministry. 

Bishop-Elect Barber is the Founder, President and Senior Lecturer for Repairers of the Breach, Inc., a nonpartisan and ecumenical organization that seeks to build a progressive agenda rooted in a moral framework to counter the ultra-conservative constructs that try to dominate the public square.  In 2016, Repairers worked with colleagues in 22 states to host Moral Political Organizing Leadership Institute Summits around the country and to host Moral Revivals for local clergy and activists.

Read more about the work that The Rev. Dr. Barber does by visiting the website of Repairers of the Breach. Be sure to like them on Facebook for updates about their activities.
