May Day – the Real Labor Day


May 1st, International Workers’ Day, commemorates the historic struggle of working people throughout the world, and is recognized in every country except the United States, Canada, and South Africa. This despite the fact that the holiday began in the 1880s in the United States, with the fight for an eight-hour work day.

We work with leading immigrant rights, students and labor groups. In solidarity with their campaigns, and organize community immigrant rights education campaigns. From community education campaigns to direct actions and strategic organizing, we are organizing critical immigrant worker campaigns that are moving toward justice for all immigrants!
