Every Child Matters

The annual Orange Shirt Day on September 30th is an opportunity to create meaningful discussion about the effects of Residential Schools and the legacy they have left behind.  It is 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.  The date was chosen because it is the time of year in which children were taken from their homes to residential schools, and because it is an opportunity to set the stage for anti-racism and anti-bullying policies for the coming school year. It is an opportunity for First Nations, local governments, schools and communities to come together in the spirit of reconciliation and hope for generations of children to come.  https://www.orangeshirtday.org/
