San Jose May Day 2021

May Day is International Workers Day. In support of workers, DSA has made working with unions to pass the PRO Act (Protect the Right to Organize) it’s highest national priority. Since the kickoff of the campaign two months ago, we have made over half a million phone calls and got two of the five Senate Democrat holdouts to announce support for the bill. The PRO Act is the most comprehensive labor bill since the National Labor Relations Act passed in 1935 and supports workers by making it easier to form unions and get to a first contract. Militant organized labor was essential to the passage of the New Deal and will be critical in making the Green New Deal a reality.
But the law only codifies our power – we are its ultimate source. This May Day there is a march and rally in San Jose. We will meet at 2:30pm at Roosevelt Park for a march to San Jose City Hall where there will be a rally. Details here. Wear red, bring a mask, and come demonstrate our people power!
