April 3 2017
Baltimore, MD – A small, all volunteer group of activists from the DMV area are planning the first ‘Workers March on Washington DC’ taking place on Sunday, April 30 2017, the day before International Workers Day. The march will bring workers from across the country together in solidarity for workers rights and all human rights. A full platform for the march can be found here:
Organizers expect over 1000 marchers to stand together and march through the streets of DC, demanding better representation by government officials and an end to corporate exploitation of workers and the environment for profit.
The Workers March will also feature the first of its kind “Workers World Fair,” an outdoor expo of groups and organizations fighting for equality, safety and security for everyone in the United States. Marchers will have the opportunity to network and learn about the different groups in the hopes that they will be able to work together in the future.
There will be a rally before the march which will include speakers from different backgrounds and musical performances. The march that follows will be approx 1 mile.
Marchers are encouraged to coordinate contingents by industry/sector to march together. Contingent organizing is taking place in our Facebook Group here: https://www.facebook.com/groups/WorkersMarch17/
Details will be updated on our website (www.WorkersMarch.com) and through our social media channels as available.
Organizers are also planning a follow up event, to take place around Labor Day.
