To commemorate the struggles of those who came before us, SAG-AFTRA members and their families are invited to join other union members, leaders and friends of the Pennsylvania labor community at the Solidarity Rally & Picnic.
When: Noon, Saturday, May 3
Where: Elmwood Park
71st and 72nd streets
between Buist and Dicks Avenues
The event will take place at The Labor Monument: Philadelphia’s Tribute to the American Worker.
The Labor Monument sits in the middle of the historic Elmwood Park, a seven-acre green space created for the workers at the Hog Island shipyard so they could commune outside of work for some rest, reflection and ultimately a lot of union business. Throughout the past century many labor rallies and marches have taken place in Elmwood Park.
The celebration will include food, music, speakers and kids’ activities.
