Orange Shirt Day 2020
On September 30, we wear orange to collectively remember the tragic and inter-generational impacts of residential schools on Indigenous communities. Orange Shirt Day, created in 2013, is an opportunity to come together in the spirit of truth, reconciliation and hope for the next generations. We invited all to show their support by not only wearing an orange shirt on that day, but by taking time to listen to the stories out there, shared by First Nation, Métis and Inuit peoples. Our university community was also encouraged to participate in the 2020 event organized by Laurentian's Indigenous Learning and Sharing Centre. We hope this occasion - and many others - spark thought, conversations, questions, actions.
Due to pandemic, we were not able to take a group photo like in past years, but here are some of the photos shared by our University of Sudbury community:
