Mountain People’s Assembly Meeting Jan 23

On Thursday, January 23 at 6:30 pm the newly formed Mountain People’s Assembly, a coalition of area organizations, faith communities and individuals will meet at First Congregational Church, 20 Oak St. in downtown Asheville. The meeting will be held to elect remaining members of a Steering Committee, plan for the Moral March on Raleigh, and begin discussing issues that need to be addressed in the upcoming election year. At this meeting, Action Teams will be formed to begin work on Get Out the Vote (GOTV) efforts, including voter registration, education and engagement.

The non-partisan coalition was created in December 2013 as a chapter of the original HKonJ (Historic Thousands on Jones St.) coalition in Raleigh, which was formed in 2007 based on a 14-point agenda and focused on holding lawmakers accountable for the legislative decisions that impact North Carolinians.
