May1st.org is not the project of any particular organization. Our goal is to be clearing house of information for May 1st actions and to help people participate across the country.

We are responding to a call for action for mass marches, shut down actions, and a general strike coming from many local and national community and resistance organizations. To learn more about different May Day calls for action visit:

The Food Chain Workers Alliance, Movimiento Cosecha, SEIU United Service Workers West, Alliance to Reclaim our Schools, Beyond the Moment, Voces de la Frontera

The May 1st Day of Action is a demonstration of our collective resistance. We stand together in the face of a profiteering economy that leaves behind working families and the growing racist attacks on our immigrant, Muslim and Black neighbors.

We will show the Trump administration and the world that our work is more powerful than his agenda of hate and greed. Our contributions are essential to American society. Our work must be valued and our humanity must be respected.
