Is your congregation holding a Labor Day service or hosting a Labor Day Breakfast this year? If so, click here to let us know about it. To find out if there's already something planned in your area, click here.

If you don't have one planned yet, please consider celebrating the sacred link between faith, work, and justice by inviting a union member or labor leader to be a guest speaker on Labor Day weekend, or focus your Labor Day weekend service on worker justice issues.
