May Day is International Workers Day. Since 2006, it has been a national day of immigrant rights marches in the US. Immigrant rights organizations, unions, the California Women’s March and the Bay Area Climate Mobilization are supporting the call for massive marches and strikes this May Day.
Immigrant service workers are leading the call for a general strike on May Day, a day when immigrants and their allies will leave work and school and buy nothing. Join one of the many actions on May Day to stand up for a world where human rights and equality are respected, a world in which immigrant families are no longer torn apart, in which every child gets a good public education, every parent can access affordable childcare, every family has quality healthcare, and every senior can retire in dignity.
In Oakland, a climate justice contingent will emphasize the importance of climate and environmental justice to the safety and health of our communities and our children’s future.
In the Bay Area:
- 4 pm gather at Meadow Homes Park

- 6 pm rally at Todos Santos Plaza
