Right now, in Canada, the unacceptable is still happening
violence affects too many of our mothers, sisters, wives, daughters and friends. This is something that is completely preventable.
The Moose Hide Campaign recognizes that all forms of violence are unacceptable, regardless of gender. We see the disproportionate number of women who are victims and the importance of engaging men and boys in addressing this issue. We also know that “shame and blame” isn’t the answer.
