MARK YOUR CALENDAR – APRIL 4, 11 A.M. TO 1:00 P.M. – HONORING REV. DR. MARTIN LUTHER KING’S LEGACY OF CHAMPIONING WORKER RIGHTS
Help keep Martin Luther King’s legacy of bringing faith and labor together by joining NH faith leaders, union leaders and the Poor People’s Campaign NH on WEDNESDAY APRIL 4 at 11 a.m. at St. Paul’s Episcopal Church in Concord — 50 years, to the day, from Dr. King’s assassination.
As a clergy person and civil rights leader, King was known as a powerful advocate for unions and worker rights. On April 3, 1968, he delivered his last speech – in support of Memphis, TN sanitation workers on strike for dignity, respect, fair wages, safe working conditions and union recognition. The next day Dr. King was gunned down.
Now 50 years later, we will gather to reflect on this history and on the moral imperative for faith and labor to combine forces to carry on King’s still-relevant message that all labor has value and all workers deserve respect, safe working conditions and fair compensation. Following a 90-minute gathering at St. Paul’s Church, we will stand in solidarity with NH State Employees to honor their ongoing contribution to the common good and to building beloved community.
