On February 8th, 2020, hundreds of UUs from all across (and beyond) North Carolina will join tens of thousands of justice-seeking North Carolinians--young, old, gay, straight, black, brown, white, working, unemployed, religious, non-religious, and more--for the 14th annual HKonJ Moral March on Raleigh & People's Assembly convened by the North Carolina NAACP.
Last Weather Update: Friday, Feb. 6 @ 10:00 pm, the weather forecast for Raleigh on Saturday, Feb. 8th is pretty cold and partly sunny. Temps around 35 when we gather for the march and rising to upper 40s by afternoon. Dress warmly!
We'll begin gathering near the corner of Wilmington and South Streets (near the Duke Energy Center for the Performing Arts and Shaw University) at 8:30 am.
Please note: If you're planning on staying for the UU HKonJ Gathering after the march and rally, you may want to park near Moore Square or in one of the public parking garages near Raleigh First Baptists on South Wilmington St. (between East Hargett and Morgan Sts.) or South Blount St. (between Morgan and East Hargett Sts.) and walk five blocks south on Wilmington St. to the Duke Energy Center for the Performing Arts (see map below)
The pre-march rally begins at 9:00 am. The march to the Capitol building (corner of Fayetteville and Morgan Streets) begins at 10:00 am. And the People's Assembly rally takes place from 11:00 am to 1:00 pm.
Wear your yellow Side with Love (or blue Forward Together) t-shirts. Bring your congregational banner and signs.
We'll have blue Forward Together marching vests that you can wear and rainbow Forward Together signs you can carry.
If you don't have to head home right after the march and rally, join us for our annual UU Forward Together HKonJ Gathering at Raleigh First Baptist Church's Family Life Center (109 S. Wilmington St.) for a light lunch, worship, singing, networking, and discussing plans for the "UU the Vote" campaign in North Carolina.
Everyone's welcome. But it would really help us if you would RSVP so we'll know how many to expect and how much food to order!
We're looking forward to seeing you at the HKonJ Moral March on Raleigh on Saturday, February 8th, 2020.
