CA AG Honors Black Labor Activism

LOS ANGELES - Calif. Attorney General Kamala Harris will address L.A. workers at annual Martin Luther King, Jr. Breakfast
Two 1968 Memphis sanitation strikers to be honored for historic labor and civil rights activism

The Los Angeles labor movement will come together for its annual Martin Luther King, Jr. breakfast this Friday. The breakfast is a labor tradition where L.A. working families honor the legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. while also highlighting African American labor activism.

California Attorney General Kamala Harris will provide remarks to the sold out audience of more than 500 LA County construction workers, sanitation workers, fire fighters, teachers, nurses, hotel workers, homecare workers, probation officers, truck drivers, and more. NFL Players Association leader and former NFL football player Nolan Harrison will also speak about the importance of worker solidarity in light of a potential NFL players’ lockout in 2011.

Los Angeles workers will honor Alvin Turner and Baxter Leach, two rank-and-file Memphis sanitation workers who participated in the historic “I Am A Man” strike where Martin Luther King, Jr. was assassinated on April 4, 1968.

The breakfast takes place Friday, January 14, 2011, at the Electrical Training Institute, IBEW Local 11, in Commerce, CA.
