May Day.

6 05 2010

Area Director, Emily, talks about the significance of May Day:

“This weekend I had the privilege of marching through the streets of Portland with thousands of people to honor the history of May Day and to stand in solidarity for worker and immigrant rights.  There were families, college students, JVs, and elders who all were there to show their support.  May Day commemorates the fight for the eight-hour workday, and now culminates in a day to raise awareness of social justice issues pertaining to workers around the world.    We give thanks to all who worked for social justice before us, and give thanks to all who continue to toil tirelessly for equality and fairness in the workplace and society.”
