May Day RVA

Richmond must become a place of refuge and safety for all vulnerable communities. We cannot succumb to fear and inaction when facing an America that lacks compassion and justice.

 

This May Day, communities throughout the country are coming together in solidarity and standing up for the ideals that they would like to see realized in their community. This year’s May Day is all about justice and inclusivity. We boldly resist an administration and far right movement that pedals a politic of fear, division, xenophobia and dog whistle racism.

 

Join us as we come together and demand a better community for all of us.

 

Este primero de Mayo, se conmemora internacionalmente el día del trabajador por eso comunidades de todo el país se unen solidariamente para defender sus ideales y derechos. La justicia y la inclusión están en el centro del mensaje este año, especialmente cuando enfrentamos una administración y un movimiento de extrema derecha que está promoviendo una política de temor, división, xenofobia y racismo.

 

Únase a nosotros y exijamos una mejor comunidad para todos.
