Moment of Silence February 1st, 2018

AAUP-AFT Members,
In 1968, Memphis sanitation workers went on strike to demand fair wages and safe working conditions after workers Echol Cole and Robert Walker lost their lives on the job.
That spring, Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. traveled to Memphis to join the strikers — members of AFSCME Local 1733 — where he gave his prophetic “Mountaintop” speech the day before he was killed.
On February 1, a National Moment of Silence will take place with elected officials, sanitation workers, and community leaders to honor the significance and legacy of the 1968 strike.

Please join the Moment of Silence @ Wayne State University:

The moment of silence will be held at 10:00 am
