Fort Wayne, Indiana - September 5, 2016
Andy Vasquez and his son Andre Moore Clark enjoy the cool weather of Labor Day 2016. Vasquez landscapes for a living. "I'm out there every day in the hot sun, getting burned cutting grass," Vasquez said. "I dig what I do."
The Workers Project, which created one of the U.S.'s biggest and longest-standing celebrations of labor, is focused on creating solidarity between union members and unemployed and undocumented workers. It provides a possible path forward against the gutting of the traditional labor movement.
The Project's Labor Day picnic is a huge, free potluck and party that highlights the Projects' efforts to create community among groups who are expected to distrust and dislike each other.
