Rally followed by march on the General Assembly

Last year in downtown Raleigh, thousands of people rallied and marched to reclaim our legislature as the People's General Assembly at the first annual Historic (H) Thousands (K) on Jones St (J). Folks from all walks of life came out to support a 14 Point Agenda for change because they made the connection between workers' rights, civil rights, human rights, and protecting our environment.

Plan now to build on that success from last year, to create a movement - not a moment, and gather with thousands of North Carolinians in support of a progressive agenda for our state. The second annual HKonJ will be held Saturday, February 9 at Chavis Park, 505 Martin Luther King Blvd., Raleigh beginning at 11 a.m., with a march to the State Legislative Building planned for 2 p.m.

Join your brothers and sisters in the labor movement and our faith and community allies if you believe

  • Every worker deserves dignity and respect on the job, a safe and healthy workplace, and the freedom to organize without interference and intimidation.
  • Everyone deserves decent health care.
  • Every child deserves an excellent education.
  • The environment should be protected.
  • Racism should be challenged.
