October is a month of many holidays, so we hope we have ways for you to take action for all of them. Perhaps the biggest holiday of the month is Indigenous Peoples’ Day (October 11th). While still recognized as Columbus Day, Indigenous Peoples’ Day reframes celebration around the Native Americans who inhabited this country for thousands of years before European explorers ever arrived.
Outside of Indigenous Peoples’ Day, we’ll be celebrating World Animal Day (October 4th), World Teachers’ Day (October 5th), International Day for the Eradication of Poverty (October 17th), National Make A Difference Day (October 23rd), and National Immigrants Day (October 28th). We have informative and powerful ways to celebrate all these holidays, so make sure to check back frequently as we add more ways to make a difference.
