Moral March on Raleigh & HKonJ People’s Assembly
February 8 @ 9:00 am - 12:00 pm
The Historic Thousands on Jones Street (HKonJ) People’s Assembly Coalition is made up of the more than 125 North Carolina NAACP branches, youth councils, and college chapters from across the state and members of over 200 other social justice organizations. The HKonJ Coalition holds an annual mobilization called the Moral March on Raleigh & HKonJ People’s Assembly. Each year, on the 2nd Saturday in February, thousands of HKonJ marchers flood downtown Raleigh, NC where the HKonJ People’s Assembly convenes and ultimately marches to the North Carolina State Capitol. All are welcome and encouraged to join.
Health professionals and health professions students are invited to wear their white coats or other professional dress to show support for healthcare for all and public policy that protects vulnerable patients.
