This Indigenous Peoples Day 2022, we uplift all PROTEC17 members and community members with Indigenous identity — not just on Indigenous Peoples’ Day, but every day. Our union and the Labor Movement is made stronger because of you. PROTEC17 invites you to collectively join us in acknowledging the injustices against the Indigenous community and work together to pay both respects and reparations to the people on whose land we reside. As a labor union, we continue to acknowledge that economic justice is not truly justice without racial justice. ✊
