Pictures from June 14th Children and families March

On 14 Jun, 2009 children, families "marched for peace and justice in the home" to show support domestic workers. With children leading the march, many generations marched together with one common message and theme: "Let's send a strong message to the NY State Legislature and the Governor that we won't stop until they honor, respect and protect the work that makes all other work possible in New York."
