Description

Each year thousands of workers are killed and millions more injured or diseased because of their jobs.

Please join us on Worker Memorial Day to honor those who died in 2015 from a work-related injury or illness in King County.

This special ceremony will also raise awareness about how we can strengthen our commitment to make jobs safer and save lives in Washington State. Keynote speaker will be Rais Bhuiyan, founder and president of World Without Hate. His topic will be "Protecting Workers from Violence: A Hate Crime Survival Story."

Sponsored by WFSE Local 1488/AFSCME Council 28, UAW Local 4121, WSNA, SEIU 925, UW United Students Against Sweatshops, UW AAUP, Harry Bridges Center for Labor Studies, and the UW Department of Environmental Health and Safety.
