Orange Shirt Day
The annual Orange Shirt Day on September 30th opens the door to global conversation on all aspects of Residential Schools. It is an opportunity to create meaningful discussion about the effects of Residential Schools and the legacy they have left behind. A discussion all Canadians can tune into and create bridges with each other for reconciliation. A day for survivors to be reaffirmed that they matter, and so do those that have been affected. Every Child Matters, even if they are an adult, from now on.

Orange Shirt Day's slogan is "Every Child Matters". We, at the VLC, strongly believe that everyone of our students matter and we are firmly committed allies in the process of reconciliation with our indigenous friends.
