February is Black History Month. It’s a time when members of black communities can celebrate the contributions made by Canadians of African Origin to our union, our country and around the world.

It’s also an opportunity to learn about and appreciate how these contributions have enriched our society.

CUPE produced a black history bookmark in 2004 to help CUPE locals, divisions and committees ‘mark’ Black History Month.

You can order Black History bookmarks online or by contacting a regional equality branch representative or the national Equality branch at equality@cupe.ca.

If you or your local is holding a black history event, be sure to email us your stories, or your website links, so we can share them with other CUPE members.
