May Day history video and the PRO Act
Thursday evening, April 29, 7 - 8 pm
Come to virtual screening of a half-hour video-in-progress, We Mean to Make Things Over: A History of May Day, with filmmaker Fred Glass, and speakers Daniel Dominguez, DSA DSLC Commissioner, and Becky Rhodes, Alameda Labor Council Political Director, on the “Protecting the Right to Organize (PRO) Act. Fred will say a few words on the background of the video before it is screened, and there will be time for a brief Q&A afterward. He is creating the video together with the talents of artist Jos Sances, animator Paul Zappia, and documentary filmmaker Rick Tejada-Flores.
The screening and discussion will be followed by a short presentation on what DSA is doing to help pass the most important pro-union legislation in decades. The PRO Act, which would restore the ability of private-sector workers to organize unions, has passed the House of Representatives but faces an uphill battle in the Senate. National DSA has called for a Day of Action on May 1 to pressure holdout senators to support the bill.
Find out about the long-suppressed labor and socialist history behind May Day, a holiday celebrating the working class all over the world but not in the United States, the country in which the events that led to the holiday occurred. And then come out on May 1 to continue the struggle for worker rights!
