————————–————————–————————–————
Richmond must become a place of refuge and safety for all vulnerable communities. We cannot succumb to fear and inaction when facing an America that lacks compassion and justice. This May Day, a day traditionaly reserved for workers’ struggle and resistance, communities throughout the country are coming together in solidarity and standing up for the ideals that they would like to see realized in their community. This year’s May Day is all about justice and inclusivity. We boldly resist an administration and far right movement that pedals a politic of fear, division, xenophobia and dog whistle racism.

No to deportations in our communities!
No to violence against black communities!
No to violence and xenophobia against Muslims and refugees!
No to violence and discrimination against LGBTQ communities!
Fair and living wage for workers!

Join us as we come together and demand a better community for all of us.
