Monday, September 30th is Orange Shirt Day - a day to support the survivors of the residential school system. "The colour orange comes from Phyllis’ story of the St. Joseph Mission (SJM) residential school, where Phyllis had her new orange shirt stripped from her on her first day of school at the Mission." You can learn more about Phyllis' story and Orange Shirt Day here.
"Don't have an orange shirt? No problem! Wear an orange ribbon, button, bracelet, sticker, other item, or turn your social media profile orange to raise awareness about the legacy of colonialism and the residential school system."
Also, take some time to learn more about the history of residential schools and the Truth and Reconciliation Calls to Action.
