Orange Shirt Day - EVERY CHILD MATTERS

September 30th is Orange Shirt Day, a campaign intended to remind us all that EVERY CHILD MATTERS... every day. Regardless of race, religion, class, age, sexual orientation, level of ability, or class/status, every child deserves the right to feel loved and supported in a healthy learning environment.

I learned about Phyllis (Jack) Webstad and Orange Shirt Day on September 20th at the Reconciliation Week here in Vancouver, BC. Watch this short video to hear her story:
