When:
Saturday, February 24, 2018 at 10:00 am

Where:
Foley Square | 111 Worth St. – NYC

Why:
ON FEBRUARY 24, join thousands of working people and our allies and stand up for our freedom to come together in strong unions and fight. Fight for equitable pay. Fight for affordable health care, quality schools, vibrant communities and a secure future for all of us. Demand an end to a system that’s rigged against working people.

Corporate elites, extremists and corrupt politicians who do their bidding have rigged the rules of our economy and our democracy against us.

Now wealthy special interests want to further rig the system in a Supreme Court case called Janus v. AFSCME Council 31, which attempts to divide working people and limit our power in numbers because unions give workers a powerful voice in speaking up for themselves, their families and their communities.

When we join forces and stick together, we are unstoppable. Fifty years ago, Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. joined striking sanitation workers in Memphis, Tennessee, as they fought for the freedom to join together in a strong union and for dignity and respect on the job.

On February 24, working people and our allies will rise up to defend the very freedoms for which Dr. King fought and died. Join the Working People’s Day of Action.
