Spectators in the Alexander Square parking garage watch thousands of protesters march through downtown Raleigh, N.C. in what organizers describe as a "Mass Moral March" near the State Capitol building Saturday Feb. 8, 2014.  Nearly 200 organizations are joining the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People in the "Moral March on Raleigh," a new name for the "Historic Thousands on Jones Street," as it was originally called. Jones Street referred to the street where the Legislative Building stands and the usual terminus of the march. Advocates are angry about bills Gov. Pat McCrory  has signed into law, including the refusal to expand Medicaid under the federal health care law; a reduction in unemployment benefits; an elections-overhaul law that requires photo identification to vote in person; the elimination of the earned income tax credit; and taxpayer-funded grants for low-income children to attend private K-12 schools.
