What’s going on for HKonJ:


This Friday, several youth organizations are co-convening the Pre-Moral March Youth and Student Power Party from 6:30 to 9:30 at Pullen Memorial Baptist Church (1801 Hillsborough Street, Raleigh).

If you know a youth or student organization that can co-sponsor the march please email actionforcommunity@gmail.com
Here’s a link to the Facebook event.

We hope that mobilizing your campus and/or community for HKonJ is going well. Here’s some info on march logistics. http://www.hkonj.com/logistics

After HKonJ, the North Carolina Student Power Union is hosting a post-march convening, walking distance from the march, in the Raleigh Times (14 E Hargett Street) from 1 to 3.

After that, you and all your friends can come to the Just(ice) Dance! at the Pinhook (117 W Main Street, Durham)

This is going to be a very exciting week for Ignite NC and North Carolina!

Why Attend HKonJ?


These are clear attempts by those in power to disenfranchise and suppress the vote of students, working families, and people of color, the very people who are becoming the new majority in the South. Ignite NC is committed to making sure that every person in North Carolina has the right to the ballot box. From the NC Vote Defenders Project, to the new Ignite NC fellows we will not rest until all voices are heard.

In a land that still holds the dark history of poll taxes and Jim Crow laws, we cannot accept this new attempt to legally marginalize and disenfranchise various populations of North Carolinians. That is why Ignite NC is mobilizing for HKonJ and calling on all young people to come march on February 8.
