For instance, in the Anishnaabe culture, the strawberry, known as the “heart berry”, is associated with forgiveness in various oral stories.

Our solutions are sound and now is the time for action in the streets, in our workplaces and in our communities to deliver results. This Action Plan is a blueprint to build a stronger CUPW, a mobilized membership and more vibrant and environmentally friendly communities.
