Sign the petition to establish a French Canadian Heritage Day in Michigan.
Michigan’s French Canadian Heritage Day. How does that sound? While I would like this to be an announcement of an upcoming event, it is sadly not the case. Not yet! In the past few years the Governors of Michigan have issued an array of Proclamations recognizing Michigan’s great diversity: Korean American Heritage Day, Asian-Pacific American Heritage Month, Black History Month, and Michigan Christian Heritage Week to name a few.
Isn’t it time for Michigan’s oldest non-Aboriginal population, the French Canadian community, to have a day celebrating its unique culture?
