Orange Shirt Day

October 1, 2018

Orange Shirt Day is held in recognition of the harm the residential school system did to children’s sense of self-esteem and wellbeing, and as an affirmation of our commitment to ensure that everyone around us matters. It began when 6 year old Phyllis’ new orange shirt was taken away on her first day of school at the St. Joseph Mission residential school.

Learn more about Phyllis’ story and wear an orange shirt in solidarity.
