On September 30th, members of the UBC STEM community came together to commemorate Orange Shirt Day with an Intergenerational March. Faculty, staff, students and community members joined the march to listen and learn from the UBC Indigenous community.

The march aimed to be educational and supportive to the Indigenous community on campus and beyond. Educational activities allowed younger participants to connect with the original inhabitants of the land and plant a seed to continue these conversations of a difficult era in Canadian history at home.

We are thankful to the people of this land for sharing their teachings with us. To read more about the history of Orange Shirt Day and the stories behind the “Every Child Matters” movement, click here.
