Labor and immigrant advocates are planning to mark May Day on Monday with walkouts and protests opposing the Trump administration's immigration policy.
The holiday, also called International Workers' Day, has become a day for action on behalf of undocumented workers in recent years. In San Francisco, participants will march from Justin Herman Plaza to the Civic Center.
Members of Service Employees International Union (SEIU) Local 87 and the May 1st Coalition of San Francisco held a press conference Monday announcing their planned actions.
Their coalition will lead a walkout to highlight the rights of immigrant workers, called "Un Dia Sin Inmigrantes." In a press release, they demanded "immediate comprehensive immigration reform," and called for an end to ICE raids and deportations.
Olga Miranda, president of SEIU Local 87, invited local residents to join the demonstrations, but asked for calm.
