On April 4th, We Are One!
Join the Nationwide Day of Action and Solidarity
On April 4, 1968, Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. was assassinated in Memphis, where he had gone to stand with sanitation workers demanding their dream: The right to bargain collectively for a voice at work and a better life.
This April 4th, stand up for the principles Dr. King fought and died for – join the “We Are One” Nationwide Day of Action! Just as in Memphis in 1968, nurses, teachers, students, firefighters, small business owners, and all working people across the nation are standing together to make our country a better place for all working people and ensure we build the future our children deserve.
There are over one thousand events planned across the country so far.
Take a stand against attacks on workers’ rights and show your solidarity by joining an April 4th event in your area!
