Hundreds of people gathered in Black Mountain on Sunday for a "Moral Sunday" event.
It's a spin-off of the Moral Monday protests happening in Raleigh.
Protesters are upset with the way the state is being run.
They say budget cuts will do the people of North Carolina more harm than good.
Moral Sunday was held at White Horse Black Mountain.
The event featured several speakers and musicians.
Organizers say they wanted to give people who can't make it to Raleigh a chance to speak and voice their concerns.
