Premier Lacrosse League Announces Season-long Effort to Support the “Every Child Matters” Campaign
By PLL | May 19, 2022
LOS ANGELES, CA (May 19, 2022) - The Premier Lacrosse League (PLL) powered by Ticketmaster has announced a season-long effort to support the “Every Child Matters” campaign, raising awareness and resources for the Native American Boarding School Healing Coalition (NABSHC).
“Every child STILL matters. Every child that was a victim still matters. Every child that is healing still matters,” said Cannons LC attackman Lyle Thompson. “Continued support is as important this year as it was last year. There are still families, communities, and whole nations that suffer as a result of residential/boarding schools. The wounds still ache, and there is still healing to be done. But healing takes time, commitment, and in this case commitment to support.”
Players will wear “Every Child Matters” shooting shirts provided by Champion during warmups on Opening Weekend. Players will also be provided with orange helmet straps to wear throughout the 2022 season.

ABOUT THE NATIONAL NATIVE AMERICAN BOARDING SCHOOL HEALING COALITION
The National Native American Boarding School Healing Coalition (NABS) was incorporated as a 501(c)3 nonprofit in June 2012 under the laws of the Navajo Nation.
We were formed after a national symposium in 2011. Leaders from the U.S. and Canada came together to discuss the Canadian Truth and Reconciliation Commission and the need for such a process in the U.S.
NABS was created to develop and implement a national strategy that increases public awareness and cultivates healing for the profound trauma experienced by individuals, families, communities, American Indian and Alaska Native Nations resulting from the U.S. adoption and implementation of the Boarding School Policy of 1869.
NABS was fiscally sponsored by the Native American Rights Fund (NARF) until it became financially independent in 2015.
