Marchers move down Jones St. at the 11th HKonJ march in Raleigh on Feb. 11, 2017.

Editorial: Why you should attend HKonJ this Saturday

HKonJ, which starts at 8:30 a.m. in Raleigh, represents the coming together of people concerned about the direction our state and country are going in. Last year was a high mark for HKonJ, with over 80,000 people in attendance. That is wonderful, and hopefully, that number will rise this Saturday.
