MARCH WITH US – APRIL 4

Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. died on April 4, 1968 while supporting Memphis public sector workers in their fight for collective bargaining rights.

Dr. King was organizing the Poor People's March on Washington, DC that spring. He understood that the surest way to fight poverty was to organize into unions.
Dr. King exemplified the critical connection between the struggle for social justice (the civil rights movement) and the struggle for economic justice (the trade union movement).

2011 – how little has changed. The fight continues. April has been designated a national day of protest in honor of Dr. King's example.

  2. The GOP/Tea-party is in full assault mode on American workers. They want your living wages, pension, and will strip any protection for workers they can.
