Candlelight Vigil in Memory of Workers

The Northwest Arkansas Workers Justice Center is remembering and honoring Arkansas workers who have been killed on the job and those who have been injured by accidents or diseases in the workplace. They are sponsoring a Candlelight Vigil on Tuesday, May 1st, at 8:00 p.m. in Murphy Park, Springdale, and they invite everyone to join in memorializing the Arkansas workers who have lost their lives or given their health on the job this past year.

This will be the main public event for Workers Memorial Day in Northwest Arkansas.
It is an opportunity to join with other working families and give tribute to those workers who came before us and struggled for justice.

For additional information about the vigil or to learn more about the Northwest Arkansas Workers Justice Center, call 759-8015, drop by their office at 2200 W. Sunset in Springdale, or email Rachel Townsend at
