On February 9th students from NC HEAT mobilized to participate in HKonJ (Historic Thousands on Jones Street). With over 9,000 people from across the state demanding a progressive agenda for NC students were in full force. NC HEAT members joined with other students demanding equality in schools and access to public services. In a time when the legislature in NC wants to take us backwards students are showing a way forward. NC HEAT will continue to demand changes that honor the voices of youth and create liberation for all.
