May Day, or international workers day on May 1, is set to see pro-labor and pro-immigrant rallies in New York City. According to the May 1 Coalition, "the Labor Rights, Immigrant Rights, Jobs for All Coalition will once again mount a rally in Foley Square organized by many of the city’s major unions, religious leaders and immigrant rights organizations. In Union Square, the May 1st Coalition for Worker & Immigrant Rights, comprised of many community organizations, immigrant groups and some labor contingents, will assemble at the historic site to hear speakers and follow their rally with a march to Foley Square. Plans call for leaders of both groups to address the combined crowd and end the day together on the Foley Square stage."
