Orange Shirt Day
Details:

The initiative began in 2013, when Residential school survivor Phyllis Webstad shared her story of the maltreatment that she received at St. Joseph’s Mission Residential School in B.C. The day calls us to recognize the harm these schools perpetrated against Indigenous children and presents an opportunity to find ways to combat racism and bullying. To learn more about Orange Shirt Day and how you can participate, click here.
