POWERFUL May Day photos here! – Thank you!

  • Yaritza Mendez Co-Organizing Director

Yesterday, on May Day, known as International Workers Day, thousands of immigrant workers including Make the Road NY members, labor leaders, unions and allies marched down the streets of lower Manhattan to demand a path to citizenship and worker protections.

Support our organizing efforts to deliver respect and dignity to immigrant workers across our state! Donate today.

With powerful signs and beautiful banners, our march began with resilient testimonies from workers at Washington Square Park. Along the way, immigrant workers staged a die-in to call out Congress for failing to deliver on a pathway to citizenship for millions. Together, we sent a clear message: Immigrant labor is essential!

Undocumented essential workers are part of the backbone of this country and economy, and many put their lives on the line during the pandemic. Yet, they remain excluded from a path to citizenship and full protections.

Help support our fight for citizenship for immigrant workers!

For years, our communities have fought tooth and nail and now our Democratic leaders have the power to deliver on their promise of a path to citizenship and make it a reality.

We urge President Biden and the Democratic leadership to move forward to pass permanent protections for all immigrants across the country.

Now is the time!​​​​​​
