September 30, 2022 marks the 2nd annual National Day for Truth and Reconciliation.
On this day we honour the lost children and Survivors of residential schools, their families and communities. Widespread public commemoration and acknowledgement of the tragic and painful history, continued impact, and intergenerational trauma of Canada's residential school legacy is a vital component of the reconciliation process.
At 3pm, students, faculty and staff will meet to reflect on the importance of this day. Elder William Woodworth, Elder in Residence will give a short address, followed by a conversation with Professor David Fortin about Truth and Reconciliation.
We will meet beside the Grand River near the Cambridge Sculpture Garden, all are requested to wear the colour orange.
