“This is no momentary hyperventilation and liberal screaming match. This is a movement. Instead of depressing us, they’ve made us determined to fight. Instead of dividing us, they have united us.” – Rev. Dr. William J. Barber, II – Pres. NC NAACP
As a partner with the HKonJ coalition, the Mountain People’s Assembly unites with other coalition organizations to visibly challenge the extremist attacks on voting rights, economic justice, public education, equal protection under the law, and more.
The coalition pushes back against radical ultraconservative legislation which violates the rights of children, African Americans, Hispanics, women, LGBTQ individuals, and other marginalized groups.
The nonpartisan movement holds all lawmakers accountable to the 14-Point People’s Agenda, while rallying around the theme: “Forward together, not one step back!”
The HKonJ Coalition has worked to transform the 14-Point People’s Agenda into comprehensive reform bills that have been introduced in legislative sessions.
