Duke Chapel Bridge Panels

A Duke University Chapel "Bridge Panel" conversation with the Rev. Dr. William J. Barber II and U.S. Sen. Bernie Sanders, moderated by Dean Luke A. Powery, about the ongoing work for economic justice in America.

The event is free and open to the public, but tickets are required for entry. The Duke University Box Office will make tickets available to students beginning Jan. 11 and to the general public Jan. 12. There is a limit of one ticket per person. To reserve a ticket, visit the box office in person at Duke's Bryan Center, go to its website at, or call (919) 684-4444.

Free parking will be available in the Bryan Center Parking Garage at 125 Science Drive with overflow parking in the Chemistry Lot at the intersection of Towerveiw Road and Circuit Drive. ADA parking will be available in the Bryan Center Surface Lot. Public parking will not be available in front of the chapel and access to Chapel Drive will be limited around the time of the event.

"In joining with others to begin organizing the Poor People's Campaign 50 years ago, Dr. King was working out of a Christian conviction that racial equity, economic justice, and peace among nations were interrelated issues -- and all matters of faith," Powery said. "Through this public conversation, we have an opportunity to bring together the insights of a preacher and a politician on the present-day work toward a just, moral economy."
