Date: 
Tue, 04/04/2017 - 6:00pm - 8:30pm
IB ImageAFT Connecticut is joining with faith, labor, social and economic justice allies to host a series of actions on the anniversary of the death of Martin Luther King, Jr.. The purpose is to focus on local efforts to reclaim the great civil rights leaders' dream of a more humane and just society. 
 
Agenda: 
  • 5:30PM - doors open at the Shiloh Baptist Church;
  • 6:00PM - "Meet us on the Mountaintop:" teach-in on the immorality of inequality &
  • 8:00PM - march and candlelight vigil: action to support CHS United caregivers.
Members of AFT Connecticut-affiliated unions are encouraged to attend; the candlelight vigil is organized to support our member caregivers at Community Health Services (CHS) in their fight for fair contracts. Doctors, clinicians, nurses and dentists are resisting their employers’ demands to rush through patient visits; medical and dental assistants are seeking living wages and raises that respect their vital services.
 
Food and child care will be provided.
