Orange Shirt Day 2019

Mon, 30 Sep 2019 12:00 PM

Each year at SFU, Orange Shirt Day commemorates the residential school experience, and provides an opportunity to witness and honour the healing journey of the survivors and their families, and to commit to the ongoing process of reconciliation. 

Join us at our Vancouver campus on Monday, September 30 and wear orange to show your support. From noon to 1:30 p.m., we’ll host a special event in the Teck Gallery. Come enjoy a performance by JB the First Lady, a Vancouver-based hip-hop/spoken-word artist, beat-boxer, cultural dancer and educator from the Nuxalk and Onondaga Nations. Plus, we’ll be serving coffee, tea and bannock.

Need an orange shirt?

Pick up a FREE Orange Shirt Day T-shirt, courtesy of SFU Vancouver. T-shirts will be distributed on a first-come, first-served basis on Friday, September 27 from 9 a.m. to noon in the lobby of our Harbour Centre campus, while supplies last.

This event is part of SFU Vancouver’s 30th Anniversary
