Dr. William J. Barber, II, President of the North Carolina NAACP State Conference, serves as the HKonJ Convener and will be amongst several civil and human rights moral leaders who will present during the assembly. Rev. Dr. William J. Barber II, President of the NC NAACP and Convener of the HKONJ People's Assembly Coalition says, "Dr. King said 44 years ago that we could not refuse to address the issue of poverty. But 44 years later, we have 1.7 million North Carolinians living in poverty, the same number we had in 1968. This is a moral, social, and political crisis that our elected leadership, regardless of political party, and the people of this state cannot ignore. We can face it and address it. We will present and push policy issues that can make a difference if we have the moral courage to place economic justice and the poor at the center of our state's agenda and do what is best for the "good of the whole". The key issues which must interconnect in order to address the issue of poverty and economic justice include: 1) economic sustainability- by addressing poverty, full employment, living wages, disparate unemployment and labor rights, affordable housing, green economy, minority access to contracts, targeted empowerment zones and fair tax reform; 2) educational equality - every child deserves a high quality, well-funded, constitutional, diverse public education - and access to Community Colleges and Universities; 3) healthcare for all- ensuring access to and protection of Affordable Health Care Act, Medicare and Medicaid, Social Security and providing environmental protection; 4) addressing the continuing inequalities in the criminal justice system for black, brown and poor white people; and 5) protecting, defending and expanding voting rights and constitutional righs for all people. The HKonJ assembly will consist of African-Americans, Latinos, Whites, Native Americans, Asians, the young, the not-so-young, and all others who wish to unite and collaborate with a beautifully diverse coalition of caring individuals; The HKonJ Coalition will assemble on Saturday, February 9th, at 9:30 a.m. in front of Shaw University on South Street. Accommodations will be made for those who are unable to participate in the march which will lead to Jones Street where the North Carolina General Assembly is located (The General Assembly drafts and legislates the state laws of North Carolina). There are more than 1.7 million people living in poverty in North Carolina today, 580,000 of them 17 and under; yet many politicians are seeking to cut more and more assistance rather than use a moral and fair approach to solving budget challenges. To those who are poverty-stricken, underprivileged, and already struggling with poor health conditions, certain budget cuts could be a matter of life or death. Therefore, this year's mass mobilization will serve as a rallying cry from "We the People" to ensure we go "Forward Together, Not One Step Back" on a mission to once and for all reduce poverty and turn back the tide of economic injustices. Centered around a 14-Point People's Agenda, HKonJ is an ongoing movement which effectively works, organizes, and strategically serves the local and state communities 365 days a year.

Video documents 10th Anniversary HKonJ March using music recorded on-site, mini-interviews and Rev. Dr. Barber's keynote speech. Members from the more than 125 North Carolina State Conference NAACP branches, youth councils, high school and college chapters from the four corners of the state and members and friends of over 160 other social justice organizations make up the “Historic Thousands on Jones Street (HKonJ) People’s Assembly Coalition!”HKonJ has become a fusion movement which works 365 days a year! Rev. Barber, the HKonJ Convener, now works with a professional team which includes a full-time HKonJ Coalition Coordinator, a full-time Legal Redress & Public Policy Analyst, and a growing NC NAACP staff. The more than 160 partnering organizations are further “coordinated” with the help of a volunteer “HKonJ Steering Committee” headed by two Co-Chairs.There at the Legislative Building, the HKonJ coalition unites to visibly challenge the extremist attacks on voting rights, economic justice, public education, equal protection under the law, and more. The HKonJ coalition pushes back against radical ultraconservative legislation which violates the rights of children, African Americans, Hispanics, women, LGBTQ individuals, and other marginalized groups. The nonpartisan HKonJ movement holds all lawmakers accountable to the 14-Point People’s Agenda, while rallying around the theme: “Forward together, not one step back!” The HKonJ Coalition transformed the 14-Point People’s Agenda into comprehensive reform bills that have been introduced in legislative sessions. http://www.hkonj.com/
