All Out for Moral March on February 14 in North Carolina

01.26.2015

The 125 North Carolina NAACP branches and the 160 other social justice organizations that compose the Historic Thousands on Jones Street (HKonJ) People’s Assembly Coalition have called for a Moral March on Raleigh.  They will march on February 14 for voting rights, labor rights (including raising the minimum wage), education equality, health care for all, criminal justice reform, and equal protection under the law.  They will march forward against those political forces that are trying to push them back.  This is the ninth annual mass mobilization, and they have changed the consciousness of the people of North Carolina.

One and all who care about equality before the law and the arc of justice should attend this march.

Witness to Selma

David Goldstein, the executive director of the Greater Kansas City Jewish Community Relations Bureau / American Jewish Committee from 1972 until 1998, marched in Selma during the voting rights fight in 1965—twice.  So IREHR sat down with him as he remembered those days, now commemorated in the movie Selma.
