The "culture of solidarity" that working people created in New York City was much stronger in some eras than in others, but the breadth of that culture is impressive. This plaque depicts demonstrations by the union of municipal workers (American Federation of State, County and Municipal Employees, AFSCME), and by the hospital workers union (Local 1199) that garment workers joined in solidarity. Also shown is one of the cooperative housing developments sponsored by the garment unions, songs that were often heard in Union Square, and an album cover from a successful Broadway musical performed by garment workers.
