We are excited to announce that registration for the 2020 AFL-CIO Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Civil and Human Rights Conference is officially open.
With a critical election right around the corner, the theme for the 2020 MLK Conference is “Give Us the Ballot,” drawn from Dr. King’s 1957 voting rights speech delivered at the Prayer Pilgrimage for Freedom gathering in Washington, D.C.
Decades after Dr. King advocated tirelessly for full access to the voting booth, we are still facing voter disenfranchisement at alarming levels. In the labor movement, we know that ensuring full voting access and a fair count of every ballot is critical.
When it comes to the important work of fighting for free and fair elections, we can’t wait. Join us at our upcoming conference boot camp to roll up your sleeves and get to work!
See you in January!
