Forty-nine years after an assassin killed Dr. King while he was in Memphis, Tennessee, working people across the nation will come together on April 4th to revive his vision of economic and racial justice.
When he died, Dr. King had been standing with Memphis sanitation workers on strike for a better life and was working on a massive Poor People’s Campaign to lift wages and ensure that every American could enjoy the fruits of their labor.
On April 4th, join the Fight for 15, Raising Wages NC and other partners at one of three town halls being held in North Carolina to give workers a hearing to demand elected officials raise wages and support our right to organize.
