From 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 easy to set up an April 4 event! We have resources to do so at We Are One. Send an e-mail to SReynold@aflcio.org to get support and tips from our field organizers. Join millions of others who are electrified by King’s same dream and are joining together for our common dreams.
