Workers’ Memorial Day – April 28th, 2022

Sheriff Raphael Washington joined local workers, union leaders, community partners and Lt. Governor Garlin Gilchrist II at the Transcending: Michigan Labor Legacy Monument in Detroit’s Hart Plaza. “We honor the ones who came before us, who created laws and safety measures that could be improved upon,” said Sheriff Washington. “We recognize those who created the very measures that are in place today in so many industries. Those measures are ever-changing as life creates new obstacles, but the foundation was built strong and true. To all of those who came before us, and left us too soon, we say thank you.”
