Today was HUGE.
Thousands with the Fight for $15 and Movement for Black Lives took over the streets in cities across the nation.
We occupied the mayor’s office in San Diego:
Fast-food cooks and cashiers in Virginia and North Carolina wore MLK buttons to work in solidarity:
And here in Los Angeles, a McDonald’s restaurant was forced to close in face of massive protests:
At 6:01 pm CT, the anniversary of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr’s assassination, we came together across the country for a moment of silence to honor his lifelong fight:
Then we took up that fight.
We are still fighting for that dream – of economic and racial justice. And we carried the fight through the streets of Memphis to the very spot where Dr. King was killed while standing with striking sanitation workers.
Thank you – for fighting hard, for making noise, for an amazing day.
