2018 Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Civil and Human Rights Conference
Updated On: Jun 24, 2020

January 2018 UFCW Local 455 hosted the
2018 Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Civil and Human Rights Conference!

800 social justice professionals, activists, union members and community leaders joined together in Houston for the AFL-CIO Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Civil and Human Rights Conference.

For four days, participants took part in actions, meetings, trainings, and other sessions focused on this year's theme 'Reclaiming the Dream: Strategize, Organize, Mobilize!' The conference was about shifting the rules and building power so that working communities can thrive and families can enjoy the fruits of their labor. Too many of our family members, friends, loved ones and neighbors are overworked, underpaid and underemployed. And far too many are barely making it from day to day.

“There is nothing new about poverty," Dr. King said in 1964 during his Nobel Peace Prize address. "What is new, however, is that we have the resources to get rid of it.”

THANK YOU TO EVERYONE WHO PARTICIPATED!
