Via We Are One
Martin Luther King Jr. was assassinated on April 4, 1968, in Memphis, Tenn., where he was standing with sanitation workers demanding their dream of a better life. Today, the right to bargain collectively for a voice at work and a middle-class life are under attack as never before. Find out more here.
Join us to make April 4, 2011, and the days surrounding it, a day to stand in solidarity with working people in Wisconsin and dozens of other states where corporate-bought politicians are trying to take away the rights Dr. King gave his life for.
It’s still not too late to set up a solidarity event on April 4, or later this week! We have resources to do so here. Send an Email to SReynold@aflcio.org to get support and tips from our field organizers.
However you get involved, be sure you find a way to join millions of others who are electrified by King’s same dream and are joining together for our common dreams.
