Every year, the largest demonstration of people power in Michigan takes place on Labor Day in Detroit.
Community members have always had a place in the Metro Detroit AFL-CIO's Labor Day March down Michigan Ave. to Hart Plaza.
By marching together in 2019, hopefully, Labor and Community will be able to move forward together in 2020. The march, the advance planning and a post-march evaluation could lay the groundwork for a unified progressive movement in Michigan.
Bring your own banners and promote your issue(s)and organizations, if you are a member of one. The Community Contingent will march behind a banner that unites us and our issues:
"We all do better when we all do better."
Marchers start congregating around 7:30 am. You don't have to get there that early, but feel free to arrive before the march starts at 9:30 a.m. so you can meet other marchers and get to know each other better.
