Re: Office of Indigenous Initiatives Announces Design for Orange Shirt Day 2023
To recognize Orange Shirt Day 2023 and the National Day for Truth and Reconciliation, the Office of Indigenous Initiatives (OII) has once again partnered with the U of T Bookstore on a limited supply of orange t-shirts.
We are thrilled to announce that this year’s shirts were designed by MJ Singleton, an Ojibwe, two-spirit student from Migisi Sahgaigan First Nation who is studying at University of Toronto Mississauga. Their design, titled noojimo’iwe, emphasizes the importance of healing the intergenerational trauma of residential schooling by supporting and loving those around you.
How to Purchase
Unisex adult and youth-sized shirts will be available online and in-store at the U of T Bookstore beginning in May. The shirts will retail for $21.99, and $10 from each shirt will be directed to the Orange Shirt Day Society. No proceeds will be collected by the U of T Bookstore or the University.
For any departments, faculties, or other University entities who wish to purchase in bulk, we are now accepting pre-orders at email@example.com.
