This year May Day will be a day of celebrating, learning and solidarity. We are pleased to partner and support immigrant led organizations for a full day of events.
The Central Ohio Worker Center (COWC) is hosting our 5th annual MAY DAY celebration. This year we will show that Columbus is a #SolidarityCity by standing with immigrants, workers, and students fighting for justice. City officials and corporate leaders continually refer to Columbus, Ohio as an "#OpportunityCity" while we know opportunities are only available for the few; low-wage workers, people of color, and others from front-line impacted communities are left out.

International Socialist Organization - Columbus
The Columbus branch of the International Socialist Organization is proud to be a part of the fifth annual May Day rally in coalition with local immigrant justice organizers. The history of International Workers' Day has always been about the struggle of immigrant workers, ever since the immigrant-led strike wave that inspired the creation of May Day in the 19th century. As an organization of immigrant and US-born workers and students, we stand in solidarity with all immigrants, refugees, and oppressed peoples, and we join with everyone calling for Columbus to be a Sanctuary for all people facing state violence.
Women's March Ohio
Women's March Ohio Stands In Solidarity With Central Ohio Worker Center - Centro de Trabajadores de Central Ohio for May Day: Beyond The Moment
We do so with an understanding that patriarchy is not the only system oppressing women. Capitalism, Militarism, Anti-Blackness - each referred to as the “giant triplets” of oppression from Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Added to that Homophobic, Transphobic, Ableist, Xenophobic, Nationalists, and Ageist Bigotry -all deeply linked. WMW-OH Leaders Trish Clark and Rhiannon Childs will be present and speak out against these hateful ideologies at the 5:00 pm Columbus Rally 💓 Join Us as we move #BeyondTheMoment
