On Workers Memorial Day, April 28th at 11 am, we hosted a Press Conference on the grounds of the Madison Labor Temple.
The dangers of COVID this past year has been unprecedented for workers on the frontline.
We honored our fallen Sisters and Brothers, who never made it home, and heard from workers and union members who told their stories about how they fought for the living.
