Commemorate Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. on Wed, April 4, 5:30-7 pm, Residence Dining Hall and learn about the current threat to workers’ rights

Posted On 3 April, 2018

Fifty years ago, Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. called for a “revolution
of values” in America, inviting people who had been divided to stand
together against the “triplets of evil”—militarism, racism, and economic
injustice—to insist that people need not die from poverty in the richest
nation to ever exist. “Poor people” in communities across the United
States—black, white, brown, and Native—responded by building a Poor
People’s Campaign to demand a Marshall Plan for America’s poor. In light of
Janus v. AFSCME which is currently before the U.S. Supreme Court, consider
being part of a new campaign to unite working people.
