On anniversary of Dr. Martin Luther King’s assassination

Local coalitions will participate in nationwide actions to support Wisconsin workers, public services and the middle class

WHAT: Community groups will honor Dr. Martin Luther King on the anniversary of his assassination by holding nationwide actions, including one in Santa Cruz.

The actions will also highlight current issues: Solidarity with Wisconsin workers, support for public services and rebuilding of the middle-class.

WHY: Dr. King was killed in Memphis, TN, where he had stood with sanitation workers who were struggling for the right to bargain collectively. The actions by Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker to eliminate collective bargaining – and the gradual eroding of the American middle class - only undermine that struggle.

WHO: A coalition of community groups and elected leaders
