Tough Keep Going

Labor activists will continue reaching out to union voters until 7PM on May 1. We will stick to the plan for MayDay/Election Day in defiance of possible rain.

Car Caravan

Dallas events start with a get-out-the-vote car caravan leaving about 9AM from Colonial Baptist Church at 6459 Scyene Road. Young Rosie Curts will lead and Travis Cantwell will bring up the rear. Curts will direct caravanistas over KNON radio, 89.3FM. A few minutes later, KNON will also present Texas AFL-CIO President Rick Levy’s talk on International Workers Day.

Food, Speakers & Entertainment

The caravan ends at Everglade Park, 5100 N Jim Miller Rd. Picnic activities begin at 11AM. Intrepid Gerardo Contreras, always a supporter of young labor leaders, will bring his giant cooker and provide food. Music and speakers are scheduled until 2 PM.

Caravan for democracy

Unprecedented solidarity has already resulted from the May 1 planning. Activists are beginning to solicit ideas for future events and campaigns to show the strength of a united progressive movement. Rain or shine, May 1 is still Election Day, it is still International Workers Day, and labor’s PRO Act still needs pushing.

AFL-CIO Says “Call Senators”

 Call senators

The labor movement is central to all hopes of a better future. Labor law must be changed so that Americans can once again exercise our right to organize against the mighty ruling corporations. All activists are called upon to call U.S. Senators and demand that they pass the Protect the Right to Organize (PRO) Act.
