Moosehide Campaign

The Moosehide Campaign is a grassroots movement in which Indigenous and non-Indigenous men and boys join together to stand up against violence towards women and children. The executive director, Paul Lacerte, of the British Columbia Association of Aboriginal Friendship Centres first started the campaign, which includes an annual event held on February 13th each year. 

The Moosehide Campaign is named after the men involved in the movement wearing “a piece of moosehide pinned over their hearts” as it believed to connect to the healthy warrior within and symbolizes their commitment to ending violence against women and to honour and respect women in their life. Their website includes more information, ways to get involved in the campaign, and resources.
