Plan now to gather with thousands -- perhaps tens of thousands -- of North Carolinians in support of a progressive agenda for the state. The second annual HKonJ -- Historic Thousands on Jones Street in Raleigh -- will be held Saturday, February 9 at Chavis Park, 505 Martin Luther King Blvd., Raleigh beginning at 11:30 a.m., with a march to the State Legislative Building planned for 12:30 p.m.
To carpool from Charlotte, email Action Center For Justice at email@example.com with "Feb 9 rides" as the subject & if you need a ride or can offer a ride & how many you can take.
Download, print out and distribute the flyer to friends, colleagues, and members of organizations you belong to. Download HK_on_J_flyer_2008_-_FINAL_2.pdf
Here's the Fourteen Point agenda. The 2008 rally will include a new agenda item on reducing prosecutorial misconduct and providing justice for all people in the criminal justice system.
Look in the right-hand corner of this web site for the list of links to more than 60 partners in HKonJ. If your organization would like to become an HKonJ partner, an official of the organization will need to write a letter to the NC NAACP saying your organization endorses the 14 points, estimating how many people your organization can bring on Feb. 9th, and how the organization can participate throughout the year to promote the People's Agenda. Please include the name and contact information of your organization's HKonJ People's Coalition Coordinator. The letter should be mailed (not
e-mailed) to Amina Turner, NC NAACP, 114 West Parrish Street, Durham, N.C. 27701.
