On Saturday, Feb. 24, across the country, join thousands of working people and our allies and stand up for our freedom to come together in strong unions and fight. Fight for equitable pay. Fight for affordable health care, quality schools, vibrant communities and a secure future for all of us. Demand an end to a system that’s rigged against working people. Additionally, a rally will take place in Los Angeles on Monday, Feb. 26.
Wealthy special interests want to further rig the system against unions in a Supreme Court case called Janus v. AFSCME Council 31, which attempts to divide working people and limit our power in numbers because unions give workers a powerful voice in speaking up for themselves, their families and their communities.
When we join forces and stick together, we are unstoppable. Fifty years ago, Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. joined striking sanitation workers in Memphis, Tennessee, as they fought for the freedom to join together in a strong union and for dignity and respect on the job.
On Saturday and Monday, working people and our allies will rise up to defend the very freedoms for which Dr. King fought and died. Join the Working People’s Day of Action.
