On May 1st, NYC-DSA will continue the tradition of celebrating International Worker’s Day with a rally and march in solidarity with NYC’s immigrant community. May Day is a chance to stand against racist ICE harassment and economic exploitation while demonstrating the power of all working people. Although the city depends on immigrant labor, our economic system pushes immigrant workers into the shadows, keeping their wages low and their families afraid.

Millions more have insurance in name only, with high copays and deductibles making it cost-prohibitive to attain care.
