On Friday, September 30, Unifor members across Canada will be commemorating the National Day for Truth and Reconciliation (Orange Shirt Day) to honour the experiences of former students and survivors of the residential school system and to promote awareness about the residential school system and the harm it had and continues to have on Indigenous communities.
We encourage you to wear orange and join events in your community!
Unifor commissioned Haisla artist Nathan Wilson to create a design for our t-shirt and event materials. Learn more about the artist and the design.
You can also download this poster to print and share around the workplace.
No matter where you are, you can show your solidarity and be an advocate for reconciliation. Wear orange, take a photo, and share online using the hashtags #unifor and #everychildmatters. Send your photos to firstname.lastname@example.org and we’ll add them to the national album.
