March 1, 2022

MLKDay_fa.jpgOn January 17, hundreds of 1199SEIU members at Strong Memorial Hospital in Rochester, NY, held their 41st annual event to honor Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Because of the surge in Omicron cases, the show took place over Zoom. But that did not prevent lively dance performances, activist poetry readings and gospel choir songs from being broadcast online to the participants. Alfred Sharif Hill, a Cook and 1199 Delegate at Strong Memorial Hospital acted as MC and State Senator Samra Brouk delivered the keynote speech to the members and community activists online.
