Join Us for Nashville's MLK Day March

In a speech to the AFL-CIO in March of 1961, Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. aptly described the common themes of the Civil Rights Movement and the Labor Movement saying, "Our needs are identical with labor’s needs: decent wages, fair working conditions, livable housing, old-age security, health and welfare measures, conditions in which families can grow, have education for their children, and respect in the community."


On Monday, we encourage all members of the Nashville and Middle Tennessee Central Labor Council to show their Union pride with t-shirts, jackets and banners and join the march to celebrate the life and work of Dr. King.  The day begins with a Youth Program at the Jefferson Street Baptist Church at 8:30am.  A ceremonial march to Tennessee State University's Gentry Complex will follow at 10:00am.  There will be a convocation at the Gentry Complex at 11:00am, and a job fair will end the days events at 12:00pm.  

We hope to see many members of the Nashville Central Labor Council, their friends and family on Monday for these commemorative events.
