It is day 26 of my 365 Days of Living Deliberately, and I am learning about an upcoming Moral March on Raleigh.
Below is the information about the February 8th march.
Be A Part of History: Join Us at the Moral Monday March on Raleigh!
Something huge is about to go down on Saturday, February 8, 2014 in North Carolina. We are standing up for justice in what is being called the biggest march and rally in the south since Martin Luther King, Jr. led 25,000 people through the streets of Selma, AL in 1965. Will you march with us and be a part of this historical event?
I’m sure I don’t have to tell you that in 2013, our lawmakers passed some of the most regressive laws in our state’s recent history, unjustly targeting working families, seniors, students, women, the differently abled and low-income folks. Now, we are fighting back and calling upon our elected leaders to protect our essential rights. Join us on Saturday, Feb. 8, 2014, in Raleigh to be a part of the Moral March on Raleigh.
March with Food & Water Watch and other organizations working to protect the health and safety of our communities.
Where to Meet: We will be gathering as a contingent on the corner of E. Cabarrus St. and S. Blount St. in Downtown Raleigh before we head to the march.
Date: Saturday, February 8, 2014
Time: Meet between 9:30 a.m. and 10:00 a.m. At 10:00 a.m. sharp we will walk over to the Shaw University Campus to join the other marchers. The march officially starts at 10:30 a.m. From Shaw, we will march to Bicentennial Plaza in front of the General Assembly Building.
What to bring: We will have “Ban Fracking Now” stickers, signs and banners. Please feel free to make your own signs and costumes.
How to get there: There are some buses and carpools leaving from various locations across the state.
Note on the weather: Make sure to check the weather. In years past the temperature has been rather cool.
If you care about protecting clean water and environmental justice, voting rights, women’s rights, quality education and health care, this is the march for you! Don’t miss out on this incredible opportunity to make history.
Hope to see you soon,
Southern Region Organizer
