June 1st, 2022
June is National Indigenous History Month - This is a time to honor the history, culture, and diversity of First Nations, Métis, and Inuit Peoples in what we now know as Canada and to recognize the strength and resilience across communities.
June is Pride Month – It is celebrated in June because of an event at the Stonewall Inn in the US. The Inn was a popular place for LGBTQ+ community. Police raided it in June 1969 arresting several people and roughing up patrons. People outside witnessed what was happening and started to stand up to police starting a riot. This lead to what is known as the Stonewall riots. These riots were the spark that ignited the LGBTQ+ rights movement. During pride month we commemorate the struggle for civil rights and ongoing pursuit of equality. We also celebrate the accomplishments of LGBTQ+ individuals.
