Just three days ago, day laborers and worker centers across the country hosted vigils, marches, and other actions to remember fallen colleagues, loved ones and friends, in a moving nationwide commemoration of those who have died from work-related injuries, illness and abuse. Yesterday we honored the fallen, and today and on International Workers Day we continue to fight for the rights of workers that are here today.

As workers, we demand that our labor and rights be respected, and we stand in solidarity with workers of the world. We also want to give a shoutout to our member orgs and day laborer centers that are part the struggle, and continue to push for better working conditions for all workers and laborers.
