This year’s May Day celebrated workers and called for an end to family separation. Under the banner of “Keep Families Together,” thousands of community advocates, and immigrant, labor, economic justice, faith, student, and immigrant rights organizations in Los Angeles marched for worker rights and immigrant justice.
Here are some photos from the day.
UCLA students joined the march in full force:
Nat Lowe spoke at the rally representing Chinatown Community for Equitable Development. He took this awesome selfie while on stage.
Lola Smallwood Cuevas posted this photo with this message:
“Brothers Rev. Sauls and Ryan Smith holding it down May Day 2014!
Equity for LA’s labor market, quality full employment for our people and not 1 more deportation!
Si se puede!”

The queer contingent holds it down strong, calling on President Obama to stop deportations and standing up for immigrant, worker, and queer rights.
“My name is Valeria De La Luz and I am a Trans Latina marching with the MayDay Queer Contingent because these are my first hours of freedom and I believe in stopping all deportations. I was released last night from immigration detention and there are still too many LGBTQ community members like Yordy Cancino and Alex Aldana in detention. Let’s free Yordy and Alex!”
