This Friday, the Office of Institutional Equity and Diversity are asking us to wear Orange instead of Maroon in remembrance of all the children and families that were affected by Residential Schools both in Canada and in the U.S.
Read about the origins of Orange Shirt Day at the official site.
To learn more about the history and impact of the residential boarding school system on Indigenous communities in the U.S. and Canada, a great starting point is our Orange Shirt Day guide.
