Tears for the Children, Hope for the Future
The Truth and Reconciliation Commission travelled across Canada, listening to the stories of survivors and family members of survivors of Indian Residential Schools. Those stories led to 95 calls to action.
In late May of 2021, the T'kemlups te Secwepemc confirmed what survivors had been saying all along. That 215 unmarked graves were found at the Kamloops Residential School. This shocked many Canadians.
From this, Tears to Hope lead a vigil for the children. It was called Tears for the Children, Hope for the Future. Like our MMIWG, we remember the children who didn't make it home. And we honour those who survived. And will do so every Orange Shirt Day.
Who: All are invited to join us
When: September 30
What: Bring your drum, compassion and your singing voices.
And of course where your orange shirt
