In a time where profit has taken precedent over people, it is critical for us to support workers as they unite to assert their human rights and dignity. People are not just workers, measured solely in production. We are laborers of love and deserve the right to be protected through the unionization that Martin Luther King died fighting for 50 years ago. 

To honor Martin Luther King's legacy, Philadelphia must win the right to unions for all. On April 4th, POWER invites you to join hospitality workers with a one-day fast abstaining from food, buying, and working. We also ask you to wear all black in solidarity with workers.

Support workers as they proclaim, “I Am Human” by participating in the "I Am Human Campaign One Day Fast for Justice." Actions for the day can be found below. 

8:00 AM - Joint Muslim and Jewish prayer service with fasters (Location TBD)

12:00 PM – Enon Tabernacle Baptist Church Bible study and prayer with fasters | Arch St. United Methodist Church (55 N Broad St, Philadelphia, PA 19107)

5:00 PM – Mass prayer vigil with all faith, community, and labor supporters | Thomas Paine Plaza (1401 John F. Kennedy Blvd, Philadelphia, PA 19102)
