Thousands are expected to march Saturday in the state capital as part of the annual HK on J March. In its sixth year, HK on J—which stands for Historic Thousands on Jones Street—aims to make voters aware of issues which could impact state programs and citizens' rights. Organizers say this will be a big year for North Carolina when it comes to issues such as education, voting and civil rights. Among the many issues participants will be demonstrating on are voting rights, tax breaks for the rich and education.
