We’re bringing Indigenous medicine to help cure a Canadian illness.
According to our research, on average each moose hide pin starts 10 conversations. So that’s 30 million conversations about ending violence that wouldn’t have happened.
More people are talking about addressing violence against Indigenous women and girls, about tackling systemic racism and working towards reconciliation, about the path to healthier masculinities.
We aim to have distributed 10 million moose hides by the end of 2023.

Our gatherings are a chance for people to come together and connect – to hear from leaders in the anti-violence movement, to enter a dialogue and experience Indigenous ceremony together.
The #FastToEndViolence sees thousands go without food for the day to show their commitment to the cause and to raise awareness. Many walk away feeling a significant emotional impact and greater connection to the movement.
To share these stories with my students is to build empathy and bridge the gap in our society. We should all take social issues on as our own so we can find solutions to systemic injustices.Teacher in Vancouver
We work closely with different sectors, embedding the campaign into national and provincial governments, businesses, schools, universities and Indigenous communities.
