Garinagu at Harlem Parade!


Hundreds pf 1199EIU members and their families marched Setp. 21 in Harlem's annuan African-American parade. Members wore T-shirts commemorating the 40th anniversary of the 1963 March on Washington during which the late Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. delivered his "I Have a Dream" speech. "4oth Anniversary, March on Washington 'I Have a Dream'" was printed on T-shirts worn by members.

They marched behind a float emblazoned with the sign "The Children Are Our Future." Sharing the float with 1199SEIU retirees was on Pont Band. The band played an assortment of rythm-and-blues tunes that had onlookers applauding and singing to the music.

"The parade was a wonderful experience for me and my 13-year-old daughterm Anika," says Cynthia Welcome, a Brooklyn Services for the Underserved program specialist. "Anika was excited about seeing the hip-hop artists who were in the parade."

"The enthusiasm was great," says Nancy Roebuck, a Patient Care home health aide. "People who were watching the parade recognized our union and asked how they could join"
