    National Aboriginal Day - June 21, 2017

    June 21 is National Aboriginal Day and related events are scheduled in Nunavut and the rest of Canada to celebrate. We encourage all NEU Members to find and participate in local events in their communities or to mark this important day in a personal way. A partial list of events is available at www.canada.ca, but you may also want to check local websites or other community announcements to find local National Aboriginal Day events.

    June is also National Aboriginal History Month which was established in 2009 with the passing of a unanimous motion in the House of Commons. It is a great opportunity to learn more about the contributions of Indigenous peoples to Canada as we approach the 150 year mark as a Nation.

    June is Pride Month

    June is Pride Month and the NEU proudly supports all members of the LGBT (Lesbian, Gay, Bi-Sexual and Transgender) community as they celebrate and highlight their unabashed and rightful pride.

    June was chosen in part as Pride Month in homage to an important historic event that occurred in New York City on June 28, 1969. On that date, a riot broke out at the Stonewall Inn, a gay club in downtown Manhattan. Police had periodically raided the club under the guise of various liquor regulations, but in the eyes of many to simply harass the patrons of the establishment for no other reason than because of who they were. On that night, the patrons fought back resulting in a protest, with police and community members clashing through the night and throughout the rest of the week.

    Many consider it a hallmark date in the LGBT rights movement.

    Nearly 50 years later, LGBT parades/marches have become celebrations and joyous events highlighting the beauty of diversity, uniqueness and humanness. But they also serve to remind us that every time a member of this community is singled out in a negative way for who they are, 48 years doesn’t necessarily seem that long ago.
