Dozens of people marched through downtown Lake Worth Tuesday evening before holding a rally for International Workers Day.
There were young boys drumming on buckets, and adults carrying banners and chanting.
The group represented a broad network of community, labor and health organizations.
Ubaldo Cruz, of West Palm Beach, served 22 years in the United States Marine Corps. He said he wants to see equal rights for all people.
“Our lives begin to end the day we become silent about things that matter,” said Cruz, quoting Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.
