Labor Sabbath
Sep 1 – Sep 3 all-day

Plan for celebrating a Labor Sabbath this Labor Day weekend, Sept. 1-3! Honor Workers with a Labor Day Sabbath! DCIA joins with Raise the Wage NC, Interfaith Worker Justice, the NC Council of Churches and other partners to encourage spiritual communities to incorporate in their holy day gatherings on Labor Day weekend actions that reflect the importance of fair treatment of workers, the value of labor unions, and the need to raise the NC minimum wage. Through Labor Sabbath, congregations have the opportunity to talk about faith, work, and justice. Across the state this year, we are focused on honoring labor and supporting the need for education to raise the minimum wage in NC. The NC Council of Churches offers lectionary resources on living wage and on supporting workers.
