September 30 is Orange Shirt Day and the National Day for Truth and Reconciliation. Here are three ways you can commemorate the day:

  • Continue learning. Start or continue your personal journeys towards understanding and acknowledging Indigenous peoples’ history, truths and culture through the Indigenous Cultural Competency Toolkit. The toolkit includes workshops, events and self-educational tools to help establish a more united, equitable and inclusive community.
  • Attend the virtual event on September 29. The University of Toronto will commemorate the day on Friday, September 29 with remarks from Alexandra Gillespie, Vice-President & Principal, University of Toronto Mississauga, and Rose Patten, Chancellor, University of Toronto. Consider using one of U of T Engineering’s virtual backgrounds to commemorate the day.
  • Wear an orange shirt on September 29 and 30. Join the national movement to honour the experiences of residential school survivors. If you don’t have an orange shirt yet, the U of T Bookstore, in partnership with the Office of Indigenous Initiatives, will have a limited supply of Orange Shirt Day shirts available for purchase; proceeds will go to Indigenous community organizations.
