Moose Hide Pin

We will continue to ask men to take positive and concrete steps forward in standing up and speaking out against violence towards women and children. By taking part in this one day fast you are showing your love and respect for the women in your life and supporting their right for peace and safety in their homes and communities.

  • Fasting Guide

    The Moose Hide Campaign is a call to action to all men in Canada to stand shoulder to shoulder to show ourselves, each other, and all Canadians that violence is no longer tolerated in our communities and society. We invite men to fast with us to stand up against violence towards women and children. Should you choose to respond to this call to action, we have put together a simple guide to explain the significance of the fast for the Moose Hide Campaign, offer some guidance in setting your intention, and to highlight some tips to ensure your safety.
