Join the Alamance NAACP on Saturday, February 14th and ride our buses to attend the Ninth Annual NC NAACP HKonJ Moral March on Raleigh and HKonJ People’s Assembly! On this Valentine’s Day, we will join other communities from across the state for the largest LOVE and JUSTICE march since SELMA!
We LOVE quality Education, Economic Sustainability, Workers’ Rights and Livable Wages, Health Care and Medicaid Expansion, our Environment, Equal Protection Under the Law, without regard to creed, race, gender, or sexual orientation, and Voting Rights for All. We LOVE the most vulnerable and the power and beauty of diversity within our State and Nation. We are determined to go “FORWARD TOGETHER, NOT ONE STEP BACK!”
