Moral March on Raleigh

Moral March on Raleigh
Saturday, Feb. 11

If you care about education, healthcare, the environment, living wages, or equality, join us for the 11th annual Moral March on Raleigh and HKonJ People’s Assembly on February 11. This annual mass mobilization of the HKonJ Coalition brings together justice loving people from across the state and nation to stand against the legislative attacks on the people of North Carolina and to continue to fight for our moral agenda. Questions? Email Pat Clark at [email protected]

Gather at 8:30 a.m.
Opening Rally at 9:00 a.m.
March and People’s Assembly at 10:00 a.m.

UUFR members will gather in downtown Raleigh at the corner of E. South Street and South Blount Street, near Shaw University. Please wear your yellow Standing On The Side of Love shirt, which you can purchase HERE.

Please also plan on joining UUFR for our Friday night Moral March Sign Making Party and our Sunday morning HKonJ worship service at 11am!

Offsite, there will also be an interfaith worship service and mass meeting at 7pm Friday night the the Rush Metropolitan AME Zion Church in Raleigh, and a Shabbat Worship Service on Saturday morning at 8:15am at Shaw University Chapel.

Joining us from out of town? Thank you for your moral witness! If you need assistance with transportation, please know that the NAACP is organizing bus rides to help get people to the march. UUFR is not offering home hospitality this year, but if you are in a position where you cannot attend HKonJ without it, please let us know by emailing our Justice Council at [email protected], and we’ll see if there is anything we can do to make it possible for you to join us.

All are welcome!

  1. Hi Everyone,
    We plan to bring a family carload of adults, coming from Charlotte. Where would you recommend we park?

    1. Hi Joyce, I’m planning to park at Crabtree Valley Mall and ride a bus inbound to get downtown. A day pass is $2.50, though, so with several people you might be better off paying for parking.
      There are several parking garages in the area, but some streets will be closed: on Saturday, February 11 from 3 am until 3 pm:
      Fayetteville Street between Morgan and Davie Streets.
      On Saturday, February 11 from 8 am until 12 pm:
      South Street between Salisbury and Wilmington Street.
      On Saturday, February 11 from 8 am until 3 pm:
      Hargett Street between Salisbury and Wilmington Streets.
      On Saturday, February 11 from 9:50 am until 12 pm to facilitate the march:
      – Start at South Street between Salisbury Street and Wilmington Street
      – Head east
      – Left on Wilmington Street
      – Left on Davie Street
      – Right on Fayetteville Street
      – Finish in the 100 block of Fayetteville StreetCross Morgan Street to finish on the State Capitol Grounds.

      I recommend using the Downtown Raleigh app, which can help you choose parking and navigate around. Your best bet, in my opinion, is to get parked by 8 AM, driving down Blount Street and using one of the parking decks that will be on your right.

  2. Have lived in NC almost 2 years, which is a big change from Illinois, where I was a member of Tree of Life Unitarian Universalist Congregation. Friend & I are looking forward to our third march, where we join hands & voices with like-minded souls.
