Martin Luther King Day 2012
Voz staff and day laborers celebrated Martin Luther King Day this part week. Voz shares a special connection to Mr. King, being that our Worker Center is named after him. On Monday we showed two videos explaining the life and fight of Mr. King, these were followed by a discussion of how this fight connects to the day laborer movement today. Participants then went to the Sisters of the Road March, which brought together over 600 people in support of the legacy of Mr. King. Participants included students, churches and members of the Occupy movement. Romeo spoke at the March connecting the fight of day laborers to the struggle led by Mr. King. We hope to remind all the the fight for equality in this country and across the world is still alive and important.
