Join Us at HKonJ This Saturday

The 2012 Historic Thousands on Jones Street (HKonJ) People’s Assembly is this Saturday, February 11. We’ll gather at Shaw University in Raleigh starting at 9:30 and march to the Legislative Building.

Other than voting, there’s probably nothing more important for you to do in the interim between legislative sessions. By our presence, we show policy makers the strength of support for HKonJ’s agenda for social justice. And we encourage one another by reminding ourselves that we are not alone, that we are part of a large movement. I probably don’t have to tell you how important it is, in these difficult days, for us to show our support for social justice and for us to be together with like-minded souls.

We’ll be there with the NC Council of Churches’ banner. Please come, bring your friends, find our banner, and march with other Raleigh Report folks.

— George Reed, Executive Director, North Carolina Council of Churches

Aleta Payne, Deputy Executive Director

Along with coordinating the Council's fundraising, my work includes both external and internal communications, working with others on our staff to make sure their good work is visible and available. I have also been actively involved in our work on food as a social justice issue.

My family and I live in Cary where we are very involved with our church and the other activities and interests of our three sons. When there's spare time, I read, anything from entertainment magazines to histories, and enjoy dinner out with my "mom" friends.
