Support May Day Actions

What is May Day?

In many countries, May 1 also known as May Day is synonymous with International Workers’ Day or Labour Day, which celebrates the social and economic achievements of the labor movement.  Recently, in the United States community and labor organizations have taken this day to demonstrate the contributions made by immigrants, calling for respect of people’s human rights regardless of their immigration status.

Everyone, including American citizens, is affected by the ongoing lack of humane immigration reform. Join one of the Marches and Rallies. Represent Amnesty/Aliados, wear your amnesty/aliados t-shirt, take an amnesty banner, and wear an amnesty button.
