About Orange Shirt Day

Orange Shirt Day (September 30) made its debut in Williams Lake and in just a few years has spread across Canada, the US and Europe. September 30 represents the time of year children were taken from their homes, and it sets the stage for anti-racism and anti-bullying policies for the coming school year. It is the opportunity for communities to come together in the spirit of reconciliation and hope for generations of children to come.
