On September 30, Canadian Scholars and Women’s Press will be pausing operations and closing the office for the day to observe the National Day for Truth and Reconciliation.
National Day for Truth and Reconciliation falls on the same day as Orange Shirt Day, which was and is, a day for engaging with acts of truth and reconciliation, and our Indigenous communities. It is a day of education and reflection on the legacy and impact of the residential school system on Indigenous individuals, families, and communities across Canada. It is a day of grief and mourning for the children who lost their lives in residential schools. It’s also a day to support and honour survivors of residential schools, or individuals, families, and communities carrying and coping with the intergenerational traumas inflicted by the residential school system.
The staff at Canadian Scholars and Women’s Press will be spending September 30 engaging with reflection, history, acts of truth and reconciliation, and their local communities. We invite everyone to join us this day, and every day.
