Orange Shirt Day 2018 at Camosun

CUPE 2081 Executive encourages members to participate in Orange Shirt Day events at Camosun College on Friday, Sept 28, 2018. Orange Shirt Day is a way to show support for those who attended residential schools and their families. It is based on the idea that every child matters.

Orange Shirt Day “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.”

Talk to your supervisor about taking time to attend one of the activities on Interurban and Lansdowne campuses. If you have your supervisor’s support, talk to your colleagues in your unit and invite them to join you.
