National Day for Truth and Reconciliation 2022
Orange Shirt Day is an Indigenous-led grassroots commemorative day intended to raise awareness of the individual, family and community inter-generational impacts of residential schools, and to promote the concept of “Every Child Matters”. The orange shirt is a symbol of the stripping away of culture, freedom and self-esteem experienced by Indigenous children over generations.
Wear your orange shirt on September 30th and take this opportunity to discuss with children and families that THRC believes that Every Child Matters!
