Repost from @destinationindigenous
September 30th is the inaugural #NationalDayForTruthAndReconciliation, a day to honour the First Nation, Métis, and Inuit survivors of Residential Schools and commemorate those who did not return.
For Indigenous Peoples and communities, this will serve as a day for remembrance; for others, it should generate conversation, insight learning, and prompt action through strong allyship.
Though September 30th coincides with #OrangeShirtDay, allyship goes far beyond simply wearing orange in solidarity. #DestinationIndigenous, along with our partners, encourages you to refer to the above infographic, which offers simple but effective actions that can generate change for Indigenous Peoples.
The National Residential School Crisis Line is available 24 hours a day for those experiencing distress as a result of residential schools. Support is available at 1-866-925-4419. Please also see a detailed list of local crisis line options available in slide 9 of the above graphic.
We invite everyone to share this graphic to their social platforms and raise awareness. Please credit @DestinationIndigenous 🧡
