Labor unions, religious communities, political groups and social reform organizations assembled to mourn those who lost their lives and to demand real progress in worker protection. Some wore silk, metal and enamel badges such as this from the Cloak Tailors Union Local 9, “We Mourn Our Loss, April 5, 1911” with a central button containing the International Ladies Garment Workers Union label.
