SEPTEMBER 23, 2021
ALL LABOR HAS DIGNITY!
SI SE PUEDE! UNION, YES!
NO BORDERS IN THE WORKERS’ STRUGGLE!
This event will uplift the King’s deep history of supporting workers throughout their lives. Dr. King was murdered in Memphis while supporting Black sanitation workers that were fighting for union recognition with AFSCME. Both Kings spoke at numerous union halls, picket lines and other venues supporting a rainbow of workers in the U.S. South and throughout North America. This event will detail this internationalist history and raise up the worker’s struggles of today including immigrant workers, workers organizing their unions, women and LGBTQ worker’s concerns.
