March for immigrant + worker rights / Marcha del 1 de mayo

[ Español abajo ]

On May Day, people of Lynn and the North Shore will gather to say NO to attacks on immigrants and workers.

* MARCH – 4:00 pm (begins at Lynn City Hall)
* RALLY – at end of march (also at Lynn City Hall)

This event is organized by a broad coalition of community groups (list below) joining together to RISE, RESIST, and ORGANIZE!

If you are taking part in the strike/day without immigrants or are free during the day: there will be a teach in at 1:00 pm on the day of the march (Monday May 1) at 112 Exchange St, Lynn. Join us there to learn more about the issues and help with final outreach actions.

• Say NO to racism, Islamophobia, wage theft, and union busting…
• Say YES to immigrant rights… yes to housing as a human right…
• Say YES to unity as we fight for a living wage & fair treatment for all workers!

People of ALL backgrounds are invited to celebrate Lynn’s proud history as a home for immigrants and as a leader in the fight for dignity, respect, and a living wage for workers. People from other parts of the state are bringing their own histories of resistance. Let’s all come together to carry the struggle forward!
