May Day

For over a decade Causa has organized the rally for International Worker’s Day on May 1st. The rally takes place around downtown Salem and concludes at the State Capitol. The event is the largest annual demonstration by any grassroots organization in Oregon. In 2006, the first rally took place around the country on this day in order to place immigrant rights at the forefront of the nation’s attention. Ever since then Causa has worked to continue pushing for the day to be a chance to bring forward the needs of immigrants in Oregon and across the nation. Each year Causa partners with local businesses and organizations to put together this expansive event.
