We invite all UNE members in the area to join us on Saturday, September 30th, for National Day for Truth and Reconciliation to honour children who never came home and survivors of Residential schools as well as their families and communities.
Wear your orange shirt in solidarity as we remind our government that this is only part of the reconciliation process and there is still much work to do.
1:00 PM – Parliament Hill, Ottawa
National Day for Truth and Reconciliation Commemorative Event
At 1:00 PM, we will gather on Parliament Hill to participate in the National Day for Truth and Reconciliation Commemorative Event. This solemn occasion offers an opportunity to acknowledge and honor the historical and ongoing impact of colonization on Indigenous communities. Together, we will stand in solidarity with Indigenous peoples in the pursuit of truth, healing, and reconciliation.
If you’re not in the Ottawa area, chances are there’s an event near you. Check out the website as well for daily online events and workshops – https://nctr.ca/education/coming-soon-truth-and-reconciliation-week-2023/
