2020 AFL-CIO Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Civil and Human Rights Conference

 

Registration for the Opening Session, on the morning of Friday, January 17, 2020, has reached capacity.  Attendees who register during the final wave of registration (January 9 - 13, 2020), will not be able to take part in this portion of the program.

We are excited to announce that registration for the 2020 AFL-CIO Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Civil and Human Rights Conference is officially open. With all the critical electoral and democratic work ahead of us in the new year, our theme for the 2020 MLK Conference is "Give Us the Ballot," drawn from Dr. King's pivotal voting rights speech delivered at the Prayer Pilgrimage for Freedom gathering in Washington, D.C., in 1957. More than 60 years after Dr. King laid out for the nation the innumerable gains that would be made possible if every citizen had full access to the voting booth, we are still facing voter disenfranchisement at alarming levels.

We in the labor movement know that ensuring full voting access and a fair count of every ballot are the most important work we are doing. And I am hopeful that when we convene Jan. 1719 in Washington, D.C., we will come with our sleeves rolled up and ready to work!
