Sep 15 – Oct 15

It is undeniable that the Latine/x community has played a major role in the success of the Labor Movement — famous labor leaders like Dolores Huerta, César Chávez, Emma Tenayuca, Santiago Iglesias Pantin, and Luisa Moreno, to name a few — and the progress that has been made would not be possible without their dedicated organizing and leadership.

This Latine/x Heritage Month, join PROTEC17 in honoring and celebrating Latine/x history and supporting the continuous present-day Latine/x community that continues to play a big part of the Labor Movement as we know it now—including Latine/x PROTEC17 members who continue to add so much to our union!

Together we are stronger.
