May Day!!

No Human Being Is Illegal!! People Over Profit!!
2:00 PM Gather || 3:00 PM Rally || 4:00 PM March

The annual May Day march and rally in Portland has a long tradition of being an inspiring celebration of international worker's day.

Now, we find ourselves facing unprecedented cuts to public services, increasing poverty, homelessness, and ongoing attacks against people of color, immigrants, women, and working families and our right to organize. Our response to this onslaught against humanity is to organize and fight back!

This year's May Day promises to be an exciting call to action. Our theme is: "May Day - International Day for Working Families; People Over Profit!" Our goal is: "Encourage Everyone to Join an Organization Working for Justice!!"

family wages for everyone/living wage
universal healthcare
no more attacks on indigenous peoples
stop war on unions, workers have the right to organize
comprehensive immigration reform
driver's licenses for all
housing is a human right
revenue for healthy sustainable communities
stop the ice holds and deportations
no more imperialistic wars
end police racial profiling
dismantle the for profit prison industrial complex
