CFA to join with Cal. Labor Federation for May Day actions

The California Labor Federation and Central Labor Councils in Los Angeles and the Bay Area will join advocates for social and racial justice and human rights at May Day protests on Saturday, May 1.

The Los Angeles CFA Chapter has arranged a bus to transport “faculty of conscience” to what is expected to be one of the largest #MayDay events in the nation, a march from MacArthur Park to L.A. City Hall. The bus will depart at 10 am from behind Golden Eagle Ballroom, returning from City Hall at 2:30 pm. RSVP to CFA Field Rep Jackie Teepen to reserve your seat.

Leading up to the day, a three-week Caravana Contra El Miedo—Caravan Against Fear—is making its way now on a journey to “defend immigrant rights, keep families together, resist Trump’s cruel and racist immigration policies.”

You can contact your campus CFA Chapter to meet up with other faculty for these events around the state.
