Dozens of municipalities and organizations will observe a nationwide Moment of Silence on February 1, 2018 in honor of Echol Cole and Robert Walker, two Memphis, TN sanitation workers who were crushed to death 50 years ago in the compactor of their garbage truck. 

Their deaths sparked the walk-out of 1,300 fellow sanitation workers, all members of AFSCME Local 1733. An event sponsored by AFSCME Council 67 and Mayor Catherine Pugh will take place in Baltimore at the Department of Public Works at 1 p.m.
