The New Branches Land Acknowledgement and Beyond Group invites us all to wear orange shirts on Saturday (September 30) and again on Sunday (October 1).

Orange Shirt Day, recognizing the harm caused by Indian boarding schools, is Saturday, Sept. 30. The Land Acknowledgement and Beyond Group reminds us of this 10th Annual Orange Shirt Day – also known as National Day for Truth and Reconciliation in the U.S. and Canada.

This observation is an opportunity to create awareness and meaningful discussion about the long-term traumatic intergenerational effects of residential board schools and the legacy left behind for survivors and their families. It is also another invitation to spread the message that “Every Child Matters.”

You can read more about Orange Shirt Day.

You are invited to wear an orange shirt on Sept. 30 and are encouraged to do so again on Sunday, Oct. 1. Also, if you are able and you have not seen the Orange Shirt Day display, please visit the Commons area at New Branches on Sun., Oct. 1, to learn more.

You may never think the same way about the color orange again.
