!El Pueblo Unido! People’s March for Jobs, Justice and the Climate
Santa Rosa, CA
April 29, 2017
Really great crowd and so much mutual support among all the many communities represented…
“… a merging of the traditional Sonoma County May Day march for workers’ and immigrants’ rights and a sister March for Climate, Jobs, and Justice in Washington, D.C. The May Day March, annually organized by the May 1st Coalition, honors International Workers’ Day, and this year, with a larger coalition, points to the growing resistance against the Trump administration’s increasingly destructive policies on its 100th day in office.
“The group aims to create a united front to defend immigrant and Native American rights, public lands, environmental and workplace protections, including government action on climate change and workers’ rights to unionize. The march will provide an inclusive forum for the community to vocally oppose the alarming threats posed to marginalized populations in America, including the LGBTQ community, women, immigrants, and people of color.”
