AFL-CIO to Observe MLK, Jr. Holiday in Greensboro

Save the Dates: January 14-18, 2010

Every year the national AFL-CIO observes the Martin Luther King, Jr. holiday with a conference. This year it was in Memphis, TN, the location of the 1968 sanitation workers’ strike at which King rallied for union rights and where he was later assassinated.

Next year labor leaders, rank-and-file members, community organizations, civil rights groups, and our allies will converge on Greensboro, NC, where the sit-in movement began at February 1, 1960 at the Woolworth’s downtown – now the International Civil Rights Museum.
