September 30 is the National Day for Truth and Reconciliation, a day to honour those who survived residential schools and to remember those who did not. It is also an opportunity to create meaningful discussions, to build awareness of the legacy and lasting impacts of residential schools and to inspire action, hope and healing.
To mark the day, we are inviting everyone to join us as we come together for a gathering at The Green (Wortley Village) from 10am - 3pm. The gathering will feature Singing, Dancing, Prayer, Information Booths, and more.
A few important things to remember:
- Wear orange in solidarity (but remember that reconciliation goes far beyond wearing orange).
- Help make this an Earth friendly gathering. Please bring your own feast kit and refillable water bottle - City of London Thirststation on site!
- Attend with an open heart and mind.
- More importantly, please be kind.
If you want to volunteer at this gathering, please sign up here.
