Crystal Maqueda, speaking at the 2022 Workers Memorial Day Ceremony in Raleigh, North Carolina.

“If we don’t all work together for the greater good, then nothing ever changes. I want people to know Armando is not a statistic. No one should ever have to walk in our shoes.” - Crystal Maqueda, speaking at the 2022 Workers Memorial Day Ceremony in Raleigh, North Carolina.

 

Every year, on April 28, the nation recognizes Workers Memorial Day. This is the day we pay our respects to those who lost their lives on the job, and recognize the impact these tragic losses have on families, co-workers, and communities. This year, we also recognize that, more than a year into the pandemic, every day essential workers, many of whom are people of color and immigrants, have put their lives on the line during the COVID-19 pandemic. Many were sickened or died as a result of just going to work - for simply doing what they had to do to support their families. They were healthcare workers, grocery workers, meatpackers, nurses, delivery drivers, farmworkers, law enforcement officers, teachers, and sanitation workers. We remember and honor every worker who has lost their life to largely preventable fatal injuries and illnesses, and we commit ourselves to fighting to make sure that others do not suffer the same terrible fate.
