San Diegans to Rally As Part of Nationwide ‘Working People’s Day of Action’

Grab your sneakers, a broad coalition of labor groups and community partners have announced plans to mobilize in San Diego as part of a massive nationwide day of action on on Feb. 24 to protest attacks against working people. The “Working People’s Day of Action” will span events in dozens of cities across the country, with tens of thousands expected to take action.

Thousands of San Diegans will rally at Convention Center Park to call for an end to policies and initiatives that are aimed at rigging the economy and political system against working people.

The Working People’s Day of Action happens just days before the Supreme Court is expected to hear arguments in Janus v. AFSCME Council 31, a case funded by billionaires and corporate interests to attack the rights of working people. Inspired by Dr. King and the sanitation workers who went on strike in Memphis 50 years ago, the Working People’s Day of Action comes amid a resurgence in grassroots efforts to defend basic freedoms, including the right to join together in unions.
