Orange Shirt Day 2020

“Orange Shirt Day on September 30th opens the door to global conversation on all aspects of Residential Schools. It is an opportunity to create meaningful discussion about the effects of Residential Schools and the legacy they have left behind. A discussion all Canadians can tune into and create bridges with each other for reconciliation. A day for survivors to be reaffirmed that they matter, and so do those that have been affected. Every Child Matters, even if they are an adult, from now on.”

From http://www.orangeshirtday.org.

For Orange Shirt Day, inform yourself about residential schools, intergenerational trauma, forced assimilation, Phyllis Webstad’s story, and the state of our current foster care system. There’s so much we need to learn, and the least we can do is listen to the stories and remember the names of those that attended these schools.
