Working people across the United States have stepped up to help out our friends, neighbors and communities during these trying times. In our regular Service + Solidarity Spotlight series, we'll showcase one of these stories every day. Here’s today’s story.
Memorial Day 2022 is quickly approaching, and to help our unions and federated bodies prepare for this important holiday, the Union Veterans Council, AFL-CIO, (UVC) has created a communications toolkit. With more than 1 million active working military veterans in our movement, every union has members who have served in America’s armed forces. While workers across the nation spend time celebrating with our family and friends, let us also take a moment to remember those who died in service to our country.

Unions and federated bodies are also being urged to take part in community projects such as cleaning veterans’ memorials and parks in their local area and laying a wreath.
