Dear Allies and Community Supporters,
Yes! It's that time of year again! The Immigrant Workers Union has spearheaded Madison's May Day celebration in the last few years, humbly taking up the banner of solidarity among the poor, the workers, and the immigrants.
This year the Immigrant Workers Union and The May Day Organizing Committee proudly joins the “Earth Day to May Day Global Climate Convergence”, an initiative to bring the whole spectrum of movements for social, economic, and environmental justice together for 10 days of coordinated action and education from Earth Day to May Day 2014.
