Our work is not limited to city and state governments — campuses across Massachusetts are also working to get their institutions to recognize Indigenous Peoples Day.

Ongoing Campaigns

Northeastern University

Students at Northeastern University have started organizing a campaign to recognize Indigenous Peoples Day in place of Columbus Day at their university. Check out their website for more information and to get involved: http://indigenouspeoplesdayneu.weebly.com

Arts, Sciences, and Engineering faculty at Tufts voted to recognize Indigenous Peoples Day on February 24, 2016 after similar student government resolutions and student organizing.
