On the anniversary of his assasination, we will come together to honor the legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., who risked his life to advance progress and #resist oppression during the Civil Rights movement. Forty-nine years later, we are #StillResisting.

Join leaders of the Fight for $15 movement on Tuesday, April 4th for a teach-in and march for economic and racial justice.  The Fight for $15 movement has become a national force and model for effective #resistance, having won victories for workers all around the country.

Shiloh Baptist Church, 350 Albany Ave, Hartford, Ct.
5:30PM Doors Open

6:00PM Teach-In
Participate in a Teach-in with workshops & discussions about how to employ the best strategies and tactics for effective #resistance.

Hear from community speakers and participate in breakout sessions to discuss what #resistance and victory looks like in the following sessions –

>Economic justice
>The right to healthcare
>Racial justice
>Immigrant rights

Food and child care will be provided.

8:00PM March and Vigil
Following the teach-in, we will join together in a candlelit vigil and march calling for a living wage and job protections for healthcare workers, who are struggling to get a fair contract and being threatened with losing their jobs for not rushing through patient visits.


The march will culminate in a rally outside Community Health Services to support our brothers and sisters in the healthcare worker community.
