Orange Shirt Day

Time: All Day

September 30th has been declared Orange Shirt Day annually, in recognition of the harm the residential school system did to children's sense of self-esteem and well being, and as an affirmation of our commitment to ensure that everyone around us matters. Phyllis' Story

The Orange Shirt Day Society was formed in Williams Lake by the founders of Orange Shirt Day to encourage and support communities to recognize Orange Shirt Day and to support reconciliation events and activities.

The goal is to create awareness of the individual, family and community inter-generational impacts of Indian Residential Schools through Orange Shirt Day activities.

This year you can order T-shirts from the Orange Shirt Society www.orangeshirtday.net 

with all proceeds from sales will go back to the society to help Phyllis Webstad with her work.

The 2020 shirt design is from Jackson Eiteneier, a grade 9 student from Calgary.
