SEIU Local 500 Members Rally for Jobs and Freedom

Ruth Musicante at the 50th Anniversary March

On Saturday, SEIU Local 500 members joined with tens of thousands of fellow SEIU members, other unions, civil rights groups, faith groups and people from across the country with an abiding commitment to justice.

Ruth Musicante, Local 500’s executive vice-president, remembers meeting Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr when she was a child. She grew up in a family of civil rights activists and through she was much too young to have attended the first march, nothing could stop her from going this time.
