We are currently organizing to get Boston and Cambridge to declare Indigenous Peoples Day an official holiday instead of Columbus Day. We have been working with members of the Cambridge City Council in order to pass a resolution making Indigenous Peoples Day a holiday on the second Monday in October. We are also seeking support from Boston City Councillors for a comparable resolution in Boston.

To get involved, check out our Indigenous Peoples Day Boston and Indigenous Peoples Day Cambridge MA Facebook pages—or email info@indigenouspeoplesdayma.org
