Tickets available for bus ride to annual march in Raleigh Saturday
Tickets are available for a ride to an annual “Moral March” in Raleigh that will be held Saturday.
The HKonJ — Historic Thousands on Jones Street — is in its ninth year. The annual march in the state’s capitol promotes several issues including voting and labor rights, health care and education equality.
The pre-rally begins at 9 a.m. across from the Raleigh Memorial Auditorium on East South Street. The march will begin at 10 a.m. and end at the State Capitol on Fayetteville Street.
Tickets to ride a bus from Salisbury to Raleigh are available in limited numbers and cost $20 each. Riders will begin boarding the bus at 6:45 a.m. Saturday at Walmart and will leave at 7 a.m. On the way back, the group will stop at Golden Corral, where riders will dine at their own expense.
Tickets are available at Hairston Funeral Home, 703 S. Main St., or by calling Scott Teamer, president of the Rowan-Salisbury branch of the NAACP. Teamer can be reached at 704-640-0907.
