On May Day's 20th Anniversary, we are ALL essential workers, and we applaud the immigrants and workers that keep this country going during this COVID-19 emergency.

We will especially recognize those staying at their posts while the rest of the country shelters in place: doctors, nurses, home health aides, teachers, grocery stockers, delivery drivers, warehouse workers, field laborers. As we practice social distancing, we cheer and applaud the ones who risk their lives to help this country recover.

Press Conference:

At 10 a.m., we will proclaim our support for workers at a virtual live streamed press conference with May Day Coalition leaders and workers.

#ClapForWorkers / #PorraDeTrabajadores:

Then at 6 p.m., we want everyone in LA to lean out their windows, come to their balconies, and step out their doors to applaud all workers for 2 minutes and 20 seconds.

We are recruiting influencers, celebrities, and elected officials to join us, and we encourage everyone to post tagged videos of their #MayDay2020 #ClapForWorkers. Let's make sure they hear us everywhere in the city. It's going to be beautiful!

Spanish hashtags: #DiaDelTrabajador y #PorraDeTrabajadores.
