Annual Moral March Turns Into Motorcade In North Carolina

A large group of activists turned out for an annul demonstration in Raleigh to push for causes ranging from racial equity and justice to a $15 minimum wage. The annual Moral March and HKonJ looked different this year because of the COVID-19 pandemic. Instead of hundreds of people marching through the streets of downtown Raleigh, the activists formed a motorcade, complete with signs, stickers and beeping horns. WRAL-TV reports that this year’s theme was “Hope in Action: Living a New World Into Existence.” Vehicles began lining up at about 7 a.m. Saturday at the Duke Energy Center for Performing Arts.
