Working People’s Day of Action February 24, 2018

News Story from Memphis News

MEMPHIS, Tenn. – Memphians gathered to end a system rigged against working people.

The “Working People’s Day of Action” rally brought several organizational leaders together at Clayborn Temple Saturday.

This comes as the Supreme Court prepares to hear a case that could take away working people’s freedom to have strong unions.

Participants say they will build upon the legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., who 50 years ago supported striking sanitation workers in their demand to join together in a strong union and be treated with dignity at work.

“It feels amazing. I mean, it’s great to see the community come together, to see the labor unions come together, to see the people of faith all come together for what is right and what is,” said Anne Smith, Executive Director of Workers Interfaith Network.



On Saturday, Feb. 24, join thousands of working people and our allies in the Working People’s Day of Action. We will stand up for the freedom of working people to come together and fight for decent and equitable pay for our work, affordable health care, quality schools, vibrant communities and a secure future for all of us. We will rise up and fight.
