In response to comments made in the House of Commons on February 4th, 2020 by an MP wearing a Moose Hide Square, the Moose Hide Campaign Development Society (MHCDS) would like to offer the following statement:

The MHCDS would like to express our concern about the comments that were made in the House of Commons this week, however, our approach is strength based. Rather than “call out” we “call in” and encourage individuals to continue their journey of healing, learning, growth, and accountability. In light of this, the MHCDS would like to take this opportunity to reaffirm the core values of our Campaign and to be clear about what we stand for. We hold and advance the following values and calls to action:

  1. We will stand up with women and children and we will speak out against violence towards them.
  2. We will support each other as men, and we will hold each other accountable.
  3. We will teach our young boys about the true meaning of love and respect, and we will be healthy role models for them.
  4. We will heal ourselves as men and we will support our brothers on their healing journey.

The Moose Hide Campaign also believes that one of the most important things each individual can do to show their commitment to help end violence against Women and Children in Canada is to promote gender equity, respectful relationships, healthy masculinity and by standing up against gender-based violence.

In closing, we would like to raise our hands in honour and respect for MP Laurel Collins and for each and every one of our elected women leaders who have fought long and hard for justice and equality, and who deserve to be treated with dignity and respect.

Moose Hide Campaign focuses on Education to end violence

VICTORIA | February 13, 2019 | The Moose Hide Campaign has launched a new education initiative aimed at K-12 students as part of its drive to end violence against women and children.

The Moose Hide Learning Journey was launched along with the eighth annual Moose Hide Campaign Day gathering, fasting and Walk to End Violence. The walk ended at the steps of B.C.’s Parliament Buildings.

“All of us have a responsibility to stand up, raise our voices and say ‘no’ to gender-based violence,” said Premier John Horgan. “By expanding its reach to include children and youth, the Moose Hide campaign is helping young people lead the way as we work together to build a future free from violence and fear.”

By helping teachers create a supportive learning environment, the Moose Hide Learning Journey encourages students to explore values and perspectives that honour and respect women and children. The online platform, which has been piloted in a number of schools throughout the province, provides lesson plans, videos and other resources.

The Moose Hide Campaign works through schools like Algonquin and communities across Canada to end violence towards women and children. They also facilitate events where men come together with women. They do the hard work of healing their wounds so they can stop the cycles of violence, especially among Indigenous men where the wounds of racism, colonialism and trauma are both generational and complicated by social factors such as addiction and poverty.
