Residential School Survivors Tell Their Stories

13 March 2012

You’ve never met a residential school survivor? Never heard them tell their stories?

The Truth and Reconciliation Commission hearings that are taking place today in Port Alberni, British Columbia, offer Canadians the opportunity to listen to the stories of former students via a live webcast between 9:00 a.m. and 5:00 p.m. (PDT).

There’s no better way to understand someone else’s story than to hear it firsthand. Why not take the time today—however much you can manage—to listen to these important and moving testimonies? And share this link with others by e-mail, Twitter, or Facebook.

You’ll never again be able to say you never knew what happened at residential schools.
