Worship service to commemorate the 40 year anniversary of Martin Luther King Jr’s death (and in resolution to continue the struggle for civil rights and economic justice).
Security guards throughout the city face the problem of low wages and insufficient benefits. AlliedBarton is the largest security company in our city and employs 87% of the guards in Philadelphia. 97% of the private security guards in Philadelphia are African American. Like the black workers in Memphis in 1968, security guards face systemic oppression. Like the black workers in Memphis in 1968, we want to unite and stand up for our families.
