Courier News speaks with ENC Executive Director Kendra R. Johnson and Civic Engagement Coordinator Kathryn Vandegrift.
Temperatures were in the 30s in Raleigh, North Carolina, on Saturday morning, but that didn’t stop thousands of people from gathering downtown for the 14th annual Historic Thousands on Jones Street march and rally. Bundled up and carrying signs that read “Fight for 15,” “Respect Our Vote,” and “We All Belong,” attendees marched to the old Capitol building to make their voices heard on a number of issues, including affordable health care, livable wages, and immigration rights.
