Chicago coalition unites for May Day

The coalition planning a giant march and rally for Chicago on May Day held a press conference April 5 to lay out the broad array of issues to be taken on by dozens of participating organizations. Chaired by Chicago Federation of Labor President Jorge Ramirez, the panel included speakers from the Illinois Coalition for Immigrant and Refugee Rights, Black Youth Project 100 and the Service Employees Union. All pledged to work together to resist the Trump administration’s attacks against workers, in particular immigrants, Black and Brown communities, women and LGBTQ people.
