The Legacy of Hope Foundation to Launch #Hopeis Campaign at
The TRC’s Final Event in Ottawa

OTTAWA (May 25, 2015) – Today the Legacy of Hope Foundation unveiled its nation-wide #hopeis campaign, to launch in Ottawa during the closing ceremonies of the Truth and Reconciliation Commission of Canada.

The campaign will feature the release of “Reconciliation and the Way Forward” in Ottawa’s Delta City Centre Hotel, 101 Lyon Street—the cite of the Truth and Reconciliation Commission of Canada’s final event—on Monday, June 1, 2015 at 3:30 p.m. The public is welcomed to attend this free event, to be held in the Frontenac Room, and to receive a complimentary copy of the new book.

“There will be a lot of reflection at the TRC, a lot of pain and of wondering what will we do now to turn past tragedies into a better future,” said former residential school student and Legacy of Hope Foundation President, Richard Kistabish. “This book is our contribution, a way of turning the end of the TRC into a beginning, into something that is hopeful.”

To complement the book launch and other, related initiatives, the Legacy of Hope Foundation (@Legacyhopefound) will invite the public to share their thoughts, ideas and hopes across social media, using the #hopeis hashtag.

“The idea behind the campaign is simple,” says the Legacy of Hope Foundation’s Executive Director, Carlie Chase. “And it’s that, together, we can make a future that’s different from, and better than, the past. This is what we’re committed to at the Legacy of Hope, by inspiring the unstoppable power of people.”

The Legacy of Hope Foundation is a not-for-profit, national, Aboriginal-run charity which creates educational and awareness-raising materials related to Canada’s Indian Residential School System and its aftermath. Its initiatives include a 2002 exhibit at the Library and Archives Canada, a traveling exhibit, community workshops, provincial and territorial curriculum, an iPhone app, and numerous publications available from its website legacyofhope.ca.

The Legacy of Hope Foundation is not affiliated with the Truth and Reconciliation Commission of Canada, an agency established by the Government of Canada to hear testimonies and to compile a complete-as-possible historical record of the Indian Residential School System and its legacy.
