On Saturday, May 1, Los Angeles will honor the contributions of immigrants, workers, and those who fight to create a more just society for all. This year, will mark a new era of possibility in a time of desperately needed change. Our work continues under the new Administration as we enter into what looks to be the winding down of the COVID-19 pandemic. If it was not clear before, it is clear now that the problems that existed before the pandemic have been exacerbated because of it. We need immigration reform, we need to protect workers and take a giant leap forward towards racial justice.
This year’s theme will be “The Work Continues / La Lucha Sigue” and we will focus on lifting up immigrants, worker rights and fighting against anti-asian hate. We will be organizing a hybrid march /car caravan and rally. We want to lift up our solidarity as community, faith, immigrant rights, LGBTQ+, labor and Muslim organizations, who continue to stand strong with one another in the face of our current challenges.
This is a socially distant event. If you are joining the march, wear a mask and make sure you stay at least 3-6 feet apart from one another. For those of you joining by car, please line up your cars and remain in your vehicles to watch the Facebook livestream of the program on your phones.
