Notice to all media regarding the June 11 Apology to residential school survivors



    OTTAWA, June 6 /CNW Telbec/ - The Assembly of First Nations is asking all
media who are planning to cover the June 11 2008 apology to residential school
survivors to please include, as part of your coverage, information about
support services available for residential school survivors.

    
    The two key points we are asking that media include in their coverage are:

    - That a 24 hour toll-free crisis line is available to provide immediate
      emotional assistance and can be reached 24-hours a day, seven days a
      week: 1-866-925-4419.
    - That other support services and information for survivors is available
      on the AFN website at:
      http://www.afn.ca/residentialschools/resources.html
    

    We thank you for providing this important public service.
