Mi Kyaiksoi Non, who is originally from Myanmar, shares vegetarian samosa-like food with picnic goer Loretta Childers. "We want to show our Burmese tradition of food," Non said.
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.
