A DAY TO LISTEN:
AMPLIFYING INDIGENOUS VOICES
6AM – 6PM on WED. JUNE 30
On Wednesday June 30th, 99.1 CKXS and radio stations from all across Canada, in partnership with the Gord Downie & Chanie Wenjack Fund, will come together to listen to the voices of Indigenous people in Canada.
Radio stations across Canada will join together in an unprecedented collaboration to amplify, elevate, listen to, and learn from Indigenous voices with A DAY TO LISTEN.
In partnership with the Gord Downie & Chanie Wenjack Fund (DWF), A DAY TO LISTEN is dedicated to sharing stories from Indigenous leaders, residential school survivors, elders, musicians, and teachers throughout the day.
The collaboration follows the public announcements of remains and mass gravesites found at a growing number of former residential school sites across Canada.
With more than 400 radio stations participating, spanning different markets, regions, and formats, A DAY TO LISTEN aims to leverage the power of radio to enact real change and begin to set a course for a more equitable future.
The mission of DWF is to create a pathway towards reconciliation, and to improve the lives of Indigenous people by building awareness, education, and connections between all Canadians.
It happened here, in our lifetime. Over 150,000 children were taken away to residential schools. You can #DoSomething by listening, and learning more at www.downiewenjack.ca. Text DWF to 20222 to donate $10 to the Gord Downie & Chanie Wenjack Fund.
