The biggest, boldest Moral Monday demonstration is happening next Saturday, February 8 in Raleigh. You will want to be a part of this dramatic and historic occasion.Tens of thousands of people outraged at attacks on women, teachers, voting rights, workers, the poor, youth and the environment will be pouring in from all parts of the state – and from across the U.S.
This promises to be the biggest march and rally in the South in 50 years. You’ve got to be there.
This year’s annual people’s assembly will be held in the wake of a powerful push back to the immoral and unconstitutional policies supported and passed by Governor Pat McCrory, Speaker Thom Tillis, Senate Leader Phil Berger, Budget Director Art Pope and other extremists in the NC General Assembly during the 2013 Session. After 13 Moral Mondays in Raleigh leading to almost 1,000 arrests for civil disobedience and 24 local Moral Mondays spanning the entire state, the Forward Together Moral Movement and the HKonJ coalition will join together once again for the Moral March on Raleigh HKonJ People’s Assembly.

- Union rights including collective bargaining
