Your Guide to May Day in Massachusetts!

May 1st is International Worker’s Day, the day we join in solidarity with our brothers, sisters, and cousins around the globe to demand justice for all workers!

Here in Massachusetts, we’ll keep up the tradition of celebrating May Day with actions to support immigrant workers across the commonwealth. In a time when immigrant communities are facing vicious attacks from all sides, it has never been more important to take to the streets!

Check out the list below to find an event near you.

If you’re involved in a May Day action you don’t see on our list, email the info to calendar@massjwj.net.
