  • Moose Hide Campaign

    The Moose Hide Campaign is a grassroots movement of Aboriginal and non-Aboriginal Men who are standing up against violence towards women and children. Wearing this moose hide signifies your commitment to honour, respect, and protect the women and children in your life and to work together with other men to end violence against women and children. Our vision is to spread the Moose Hide Campaign to organizations, communities, and governments throughout Canada.

 "It's a way to connect us to the healthy warrior within.”

  Paul Lacerte, founder of the Moose Hide Campaign.
