May Day March & PartyBack >
May 7, 2017
In today's political climate, it is increasingly more critical that we come together to envision and celebrate our shared vision for a just and vibrant economy. Our new economy must be founded on worker's rights, responsible management of resources, democratic-decision making, sacredness, the arts, and equity for all people! What better time to celebrate then on May Day -- an international holiday honoring working folks?!
This year, there will be two day-long puppet-making workshops on April 23 and 30 -- in which community members bring this regenerative economy to life -- followed by a parade, rally, and skate party on Sunday, May 7. Folks from all walks of life are invited to participate, and all events are free and open to the public.
The Crossroads Collective, a partnership of Open Buffalo, Partnership for the Public Good (PPG), People United for Sustainable Housing (PUSH), Coalition for Economic Justice (CEJ), Public Accountability Initiative (PAI), Ujima Theatre, WASH Project, African Heritage Food Co-op, and Massachusetts Avenue Project (MAP) is hosting the first annual May Day Parade.
