The top reason for attending this Saturday’s Moral March on Raleigh

https://naacpnc.org/wp-content/uploads/2018/01/Moral-March-single.jpgThere are a lot of good reasons to attend this Saturday’s HKonJ “People’s  Assembly” / Moral March on Raleigh — the dreadful state of American and North Carolina politics, the crucial importance of staying engaged and connected to the fight for justice, the chance to hear an inspiring messages from lots of great speakers, including the new head of the North Carolina NAACP (Rev. T. Anthony Spearman), and even the predictions of mild, springlike (if a tad damp) weather.

But for my money, the main reason to attend is evident in what event organizers have made the theme for this year’s event: “Taking the Resistance to the Ballot Box.”

If ever there was a year in which it’s critical to urge all North Carolinians to vote and, indeed, to devote a sizable chunk of one’s time over the next nine months to such efforts, it’s 2018.

Hope to see you there on Saturday morning!
