BC Provincial Gathering and Day of Fasting
February 13, 2019

Our deepest thanks to the thousands who joined us on February 13th for our Provincial Gathering and Day of Fasting. What a beautiful day of ceremony, filled with poignant moments and heartfelt, passionate words from many, including Lieutenant Governor Janet Austin, Chief Dr. Robert Joseph, Chief Commissioner Marion Buller, Premier John Horgan, Sage Lacerte, and our co-founders Paul and Raven Lacerte.

The Gathering also marked the formal launch our K-12 Moose Hide Campaign Education Initiative, a free online platform designed to help teachers and their students join us in creating a future that is safe for all women and children. Youth are a key part of the journey towards ending gender-based violence and their powerful voices were represented by speakers Mercedes Marshall and Duncan Ryans, as well as Shauntelle’s gripping spoken word piece. We are humbled by youth’s strength and are so looking forward to seeing how they will influence our journey towards ending violence against women and children.

Thank you for taking a day to reflect on why this work is important, to remember who you’re doing it for, and to connect with each other and strengthen your resolve to build a Canada that is free from gender-based violence. Thank you for standing with us.

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.

  • Role of Women in the Moose Hide Campaign

    The Moose Hide Campaign is a grassroots movement of Indigenous and non-Indigenous men and boys who are standing up against violence towards women and children. Wearing the 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. This is a powerful idea and a commitment that is long over-due. But what about the role of Women in the Moose Hide Campaign? Read More
