On Thursday, Protestant minister and president of the North Carolina NAACP William Barber II took the stage at the Democratic National Convention to deliver a moving speech advocating for a revival of “the heart of our democracy” with the power of love, mercy and justice for all.

“When we love the Jewish child and the Palestinian child, the Muslim and the Christian and the Hindu and the Buddhist and those who have no faith but they love this nation,” said Barber. “We are reviving the heart of our Democracy.”
