Day of Dignity and Respect

Continuing King’s Legacy: Fighting for $15 Family Wages 

When: Wednesday, April 4th, 6:00 PM

Where: Winston Square Park – 310 N Marshall St, parking available across the street at First Presbyterian Church

Rain Location:  Goler Memorial A.M.E Zion Church (620 Patterson Ave @ 7th St.)

Join Winston-Salem faith leaders, Working America, city workers, and community members as we rally to commemorate Dr. Martin Luther King Jr’s legacy of championing working people’s rights.

Dr. King combined the struggle for civil rights and the struggle for economic justice. 50 years after King’s assassination, too many people in our community still can’t afford basic necessities.

Join us as we remember Dr. King, and continue his legacy by fighting for $15 family wages for city workers. Following the rally, join us for an ecumenical worship service at Goler Memorial A.M.E Zion Church.
