Happy Easter

The AFL-CIO, representing more than 12.5 million working people in 60 national and international unions, extends our heartfelt greetings to our union members who are Christian, their families and the Christian community this Easter.

In 2024, Easter is celebrated on Sunday, March 31, and on May 5 by Eastern Orthodox churches.

Easter celebrates the foundational Christian belief in the Resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead and the promise of eternal life for those who follow Him. 

Easter offers hope in what seems to be a time of hopelessness.

It is that hope that gives us the strength and courage to continue on in the face of overwhelming  odds to strive for justice and equity against the forces of hate and bigotry. Hope allows us to believe more is possible.

Easter is a time to renew the aspirations we have for family, community and nation that may seem impossible to achieve, knowing the Easter spirit gives us the hope to persevere.  

May this be a special opportunity for you to enjoy your family and loved ones, encouraged by the hope of Easter for the possibilities the future holds.
