Join the NAACP, NC Council of Churches, and other coalition partners for the Tenth Annual Moral March on Raleigh. Historic Thousands on Jones Street 2016 takes place on Saturday, February 13; gather and rally is at 8:30 a.m. and the march begins at 10 a.m. Participants can meet across the street from Raleigh Memorial Auditorium at 2 East South Street.
Since its beginnings, HKonJ has drawn together a broad cross-section of North Carolinians committed to justice for all in this state, especially the most vulnerable among us. This year’s march is focused on getting out the vote. Along with voting rights, key issues are:
- Labor rights
- Educational equality
- Health care for all
- Environmental justice
- Equal protection under the law
- Criminal justice reform and ending police brutality
Faith communities from throughout North Carolina, including the Council of Churches, will be participating.
An HKonJ Shabbat Service takes place at 8:15 the morning of the march in the chapel at Shaw University. People of all faiths are welcome. It is co-sponsored by Temple Beth Or and Carolina Jews for Justice.
And a Valentine’s Day Preach-In will follow on February 14. Pastors visiting Raleigh for the Moral March are invited to stay. Local pastors who would like to host a guest preacher from across race and/or denominational lines on February 14, fill out this form. Someone will be in touch to connect you with your guest.
