CALL FOR VOLUNTEERS FOR MAY DAY 2011!

APRIL 5, 2011 BY ELCOMITEWA

CALL FOR VOLUNTEERS FOR MAY DAY 2011!

The Annual May Day March would not be possible without the help of numerous organizers and volunteers who donate their time and energy to the cause of workers, civil and human rights to make the largest Immigrant Rights March in the Pacific Northwest. This year, as in others past, we continue to witness attacks against workers via budget cuts and against the basic right to organize collectively, the most visible of these attacks occurring in Wisconsin and along the Midwest. Likewise, ICE officials and state legislatures across the country continue an onslaught against undocumented workers and communities with absolute impunity. One such example with the recent

drivers’ license bill in Olympia that was halted momentarily in early March.

PLEASE JOIN THE MAY 1ST ACTION COALITION AND EL COMITÉ PRO-REFORMA MIGRATORIA Y JUSTICIA SOCIAL TO MAKE THE 2011 MAY DAY MARCH THE LARGEST ONE YET!

Entering the 11th year of the May Day March, the coalition is in need of volunteers to help put the program together and ensure things run smoothly on May 1st.

We are in need of 300 volunteers to help with the march and 30 ushers to help at Memorial Stadium at Seattle Center
