UFV will be commemorating Orange Shirt Day a little early this year, and presenting a special guest to provide insight and education about the generational impacts of the Indian Residential School system in Canada.

Phyllis Webstad, whose personal story inspired the Orange Shirt Day movement, will speak at UFV in a Zoom meeting format on Monday, Sept 21, at 12:30 pm.

This event will take place on Zoom. The public is welcome and admission is free. All participants will receive a surprise commemorative gift.

“We are very fortunate to have Phyllis join us at UFV. It takes tremendous courage to talk about the darkest corners of history. And, it is incredibly generous of her to share the journey back towards reconciliation. It is a real gift to spend some time with Phyllis. She was going to be with us in person, but because of COVID-19 restrictions we will be interacting with her via Zoom,” notes Shirley Hardman, Senior Advisor on Indigenous Affairs at UFV.
