Reverend Jim Wallis On Ferguson: 'We Need More Than A Commission, We Need A Movement'

Rev. Jim Wallis, president and founder of Sojourners, spoke with HuffPost Live at Davos about being arrested in Ferguson, Missouri, saying his arrest was much different than the arrests of young black men there.

Wallis said he spoke to at least one officer in Ferguson who told him he knew change would have to come. But Wallis said that change can't be limited to law enforcement, or the town of Ferguson.

"If Christians were more Christian than they are white, black parents would have less to fear for their kids," Wallis said.

Wallis did praise the creation of the Ferguson Commission, but said it won't be enough to create permanent social change in America.

"We need more than a commission, we need a movement," Wallis said.

Wallis said he supports the use of body cameras by police, but doesn't think they are a solution to ending police brutality against black men and women, citing the Eric Garner case in New York.

"I'm for body cameras, but we have some deeper issues here," Rev. Wallis said.

"We need to make some concrete changes in policing, that would help, but the underlying issues are the issues in race," he added.

'Doing Less, But Better'

Greg McKeown, author of Essentialism: The Disciplined Pursuit of Less, said his book grew out of working with people who are really successful.

"Success can become a catalyst for failure," he said.

McKeown said leaders at Davos have experience with plateauing after achieving professional success. To avoid that, McKeown said, people must find a way to expand their contribution without doing more.

"The whole idea is about doing less, but better," he said.
