Chinese New Year 2022 – Year of the Tiger

2022 represents the Year of the Tiger, an animal that symbolizes strength, power and prosperity in the Chinese zodiac. The Chinese zodiac is separated into 12 astrological signs that are governed by different animals like the tiger, rat, snake, horse, ox and monkey. The astrological calendar repeats itself every 12 years, which means that there are lots of people who were born in years that correspond with the tiger (of course, you don’t have to be born during a tiger year to get a gift). In China, where Lunar New Year celebrations can last up to 16 days, the color red represents happiness, success, vitality, beauty and good luck — which is why most Lunar New Year products feature red coloring. Below, find a curated list of 21 gift options for Lunar New Year.

In honor of Martin Luther King, Jr. Day 2022

In honor of Martin Luther King, Jr. Day 2022, and King’s tireless, hard work, perseverance, determination and many sacrifices with the ultimate sacrifice being his life, the OPEIU Local 29 Executive Board and SERJ Committee support this MoveOn call to action!

Sign now: Democrats must honor Martin Luther King Jr's legacy with action to protect and expand our freedom to vote.


As we mark the one-year anniversary of the dark day in American history when militants stormed the U.S. Capitol in a deadly attempt to overturn the will of the people, we must renew our commitment to protecting truth and democracy by ensuring voting rights for all Americans.

We must also hold those responsible for the attacks accountable, from every rioter who desecrated our Capitol to those politicians who spurred them on and continue to spread hate and extremism. We can accept nothing less than full accountability for those who continue to threaten our democracy by brazenly spreading lies about our elections and government to serve their own self-interests. 

We must protect our fragile democracy by preventing partisan politics from sabotaging our elections. We demand our senators exercise their majority and pass the Freedom to Vote Act and John Lewis Voting Rights Advancement Act to create national standards that protect every Americans' right to vote, ensure every vote is counted and prevent partisan politicians from sabotaging the results of our elections.
