Join us at 10 AM Friday, April 28th in Raleigh for a press conference and solemn memorial service during which participants will toll a bell 179 times – once for each person in North Carolina who died while working for a better life in 2021 – and will renew our fight for strong safety and health protections.
What: Solemn memorial service and press conference
When: Friday, April 28th at 10:00 AM
Where: North Carolina State Capitol (south pad/Morgan St.), 1 E. Edenton Street, Raleigh, NC 27601
Why: Together on Workers Memorial Day, we raise our collective voices to win stronger safety and health protections in our workplaces and stronger job safety and health laws. We hold employers accountable to keep workers safe. We demand action on critical safety and health protections against preventable workplace hazards. We demand more resources for our nation’s job safety agencies to hold employers accountable. We demand dignity at work. And we will organize and fight for the fundamental right of every worker to a safe job until that promise is fulfilled.
