Mourn for the Dead, Fight for the Living

While coming together to remember those who have lost their lives and to demand safe workplaces and good jobs for all working people – the centerpieces of Workers Memorial Day – is not possible this year due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the Connecticut AFL-CIO Health & Safety Committee commemorated this important day with this video so we can still mourn for the dead and continue to fight for the living.
