April 4 is the anniversary of the death of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. assassinated as he joined striking sanitation workers demanding their dream – the right to bargain collectively for a better life. Those who marched in rallies in Wisconsin are part of an unbroken chain. During the week of April 4, rallies will be held in cities across Illinois, culminating in an all-Illinois rally in Chicago. Be a part of the march, stand up against unbridled corporate power.

Rally is hosted by the Chicago Federation of Labor and the Illinois AFL-CIO.
