Buy an Orange Shirt

 Or, find one in your closet.

Then, wear it on Sept. 30. You’ll be showing your solidarity with Indigenous people in the US and Canada on “Orange Shirt Day.”

What’s that, you ask?

Sept 30: Orange Shirt Day
Wearing orange on September 30 will honor and educate about the ongoing impacts of the Indigenous boarding schools in the U.S. and the residential schools in Canada. Learn about the U.S. boarding schools by reading the resources provided by the National Native American Boarding School Healing Coalition. 

(From Wikipedia) Orange Shirt Day (French: Jour du chandail orange),[1] also known as the National Day for Truth and Reconciliation (French: Journée nationale de la vérité et de la réconciliation), is a Canadian statutory holiday. It was created as an observance in 2013, and is designed to educate people and promote awareness in Canada about the Indian residential school system and the impact it has had on Indigenous communities for over a century—an impact recognized as a cultural genocide, and an impact that continues today.[2] It is held annually on September 30 in Canadian communities, where people are encouraged to wear an orange shirt. The day was elevated to a statutory holiday by the Canadian government in 2021,[3] in light of the revelations of over 1,000 unmarked graves near former residential school sites
