A Dallas celebration of International Workers’ Day has been a long time dream of TARA Secretary Gene Lantz. On May 1, 2021, thanks to the work of the DFW YALL ( Young Active Labor Leaders) that dream became a reality. Gene served as an advisor and the Dallas AFL-CIO as an organizing sponsor, joined by 20 other groups for this special celebration, which started with an Election Day car caravan and moved to a picnic with great food, music and speakers. Lantz took the stage to explain the history of May Day. YALL event head Travis Cantwell later introduced new Texas AFL-CIO Secretary Treasurer Leonard Aguilar who came from Austin to speak to the group.
The Dallas TARA chapter was one of the early event sponsors and Field Organizer Judy Bryant took the mic during the program to share information about the organization. Super Dallas Activists Patricia Murphy, Eddie Morgan, Horace Blake, Charlotte Connelly, Mary Chambers and Martha Chapman participated in the event. The festivities were closed by talented TARA activists Linda Coleman and James Kille singing several Union songs and then leading the crowd in “Solidarity Forever”.
Thanks to Horace Blake for being the TARA photographer.
