Weekly Update

May Day of Resistance
This May Day, we will draw attention to the very real threats facing us all with the cuts to education, healthcare, environmental protections, workers’ rights, and public services that threaten our families and communities. Workers from Shoreline to Seattle, on job sites, university campuses and in hospitals will join together, across class lines to demand a better future. We’re calling on the entire King County community to join the march and take part in solidarity actions, in unity with those who seek to protect their loved ones, to elevate the voices of workers, and to collectively assert the values we want to shape our community and our world. Meet at Judkins Park for the march and take part in the digital actions happening along the way. View the May Day of Resistance press advisory.
