Every Child Matters


This week, we are holding space to bear witness and mourn the 215 children whose remains were found at the site of the Kamloops Indian Residential School in British Columbia. In lieu of the episode we planned to release this week we released this short episode with links to important educational resources, podcasts hosted by Indigenous creators, and organizations to donate to. If it is within your means, please join us in donating to the Indian Residential Schools Survivors Society and the First Nations Caring Society.
