For more than 20 years, CHIRLA and its local coalition partners have marched on May 1 for the rights of immigrants and workers, commemorating the traditional International Workers’ Rights Day. In 2006, more than a million people converged in downtown Los Angeles for the largest May Day march the city has ever seen. May Day has become a Los Angeles tradition and a time when we recognize the contributions of organized labor and immigrants to our city, our state and our country.
