Black History Month is finally here!

Black History Month is finally here! We continue to reflect on our history and our most recent ground-breaking strides, despite four years of one of the most racist and repressive Presidents in recent U.S. history.  

In 1926 Negro History Week was created by historian Dr. Carter G. Woodson, also known as the Father of Black History, and celebrated the second week of February, to bring awareness to the accomplishments and contributions of Black Americans to American history.  In February 1969, Black History Month was proposed by Black educators along with the Black United Students of Kent State University, and thus the first celebration of Black History Month took place at Kent State in 1970.

STATEMENT OF THE OFFICE AND PROFESSIONAL EMPLOYEES INTERNATIONAL UNION ON CONGRESSIONAL CERTIFICATION OF PRESIDENTIAL ELECTION AND CONDEMNATION OF VIOLENCE AT THE U.S. CAPITOL

Yesterday was one of the darkest, most shameful days in our nation's history. Incited by the rhetoric of Donald Trump, domestic terrorists stormed the U.S. Capitol and threatened the lives of our nation's lawmakers, their staffs and the men and women who serve what President Elect Biden called "the citadel of liberty." This insurrection was directly incited by President Trump and his allies and they must be held accountable. This president has violated his oath to the nation to defend and protect our constitution. He must immediately be removed from office.
