Orange Shirt Day

Wednesday, September 30, 2020 (All day)

Orange Shirt Day is a legacy of the St. Joseph Mission residential school commemoration event held in Williams Lake in the spring of 2013. It grew out of Phyllis’s account of losing her shiny new orange shirt on her first day of school at the Mission, and it has become an opportunity to keep the discussion on all aspects of residential schools happening annually. Wear your Orange shirt and be part of the discussion, be part of the healing because Every Child Matters!
