This coming Saturday on Sept 30 is the National Day for Truth and Reconciliation.
September 30 was originally called Orange Shirt Day, a grassroots movement started in 2013 by Phyllis Webstad in her response to her “Residential School experience“.
September 30 is now an official Canadian holiday, created by “Federal Statute“.
The Circles for Reconciliation team will be at the march starting at The Forks, Saturday, September 30th. We will be at the circle near the Manitoba Children’s Museum at 10:30 am. You will see us in our CFR t-shirts with orange accessories and/or Orange Shirts. More details to come.
