A DAY TO LISTEN:
AMPLIFYING INDIGENOUS VOICES
6am – 6pm (local time) on Wednesday, June 30 on radio stations across Canada
In recognition of National Indigenous History Month, Bell Media, Corus Entertainment Inc., Rogers Sports & Media, Stingray Radio, and more, 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 announcement that the remains of 215 children were buried at the site of the former Kamloops Indian Residential School and growing numbers of children at 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. #dosomething
