Saturday, February 8, 8 a.m.

Moral March on Raleigh and HKonJ People’s Assembly
Saturday, February 8, 9:30 a.m. Assembly; 10:30 a.m. March
Beginning at Shaw University and continuing to Fayetteville Street
The March began in 2006 as a coalition of organizations committed to a progressive and just North Carolina. In the ensuing years, HKonJ has grown to more than 150 partners and in 2014 is building on the tremendously successful Moral Monday rallies from this past summer.
This is an opportunity for anyone committed to policies and decisions that serve all of North Carolina’s people to have their voices heard in solidarity with others.
If you are interested in marching behind the Council’s banner, we will gather near the McDonald’s at 105 East South Street beginning at 9:30.
Saturday attendees are encouraged to allow extra time for travel because of a road race in the area between NC State University’s main campus and Peace Street.
