Annual Clothing Drive – September 8, 2021

On September 8th Pace Law partnered with local charities to give back to our community through a clothing drive. All donations have gone to three local shelters helping men, women, and children meet some of their day-to-day needs such as: clothing, toiletry and bedding items. The three local shelters that we donated to were:

  1. Street Haven – Women’s shelter
  2. Seaton House – Men’s shelter
  3. Family Shelter – Abused woman/men with children

 

National day for Truth and Reconciliation, also known as ‘Orange Shirt day’ – September 30, 2021

At Pace Law, we encouraged all staff to partake in ‘Orange shirt day.’ Orange t-shirts were provided to our staff on September 30th to help honour and raise awareness regarding the tragic history of residential schools.

The orange t-shirts represented the Indigenous children who did not make it home, those who returned home without their culture, and all surviving Indigenous people experiencing intergenerational trauma daily. Orange t-shirt day was inspired by Phyllis Webstad, who shares her story about her first experience at a residential school.

The vintage esthetic t-shirts worn by our staff on September 30th, were made specifically for Pace law by The Six Clothing company which is a Haudenosaunee, family owned and operated business located on the Six Nations of the Grand River Territory.

The Six Clothing has been greatly impacted by residential schools and all proceeds from the orange shirts were donated to the cultural revitalization programs within the Six Nations of the Grand River Territory.
