The Moose Hide Campaign started as a grassroots movement of Indigenous and non-Indigenous men and boys standing up against violence towards women and children. Over the years, it has grown into a national campaign to engage all Canadians, with more than 2,000 participating communities and organizations across the country.
This year, Humber has become an Ambassador Campus for the Moose Hide Campaign. This designation recognizes the college’s ongoing commitment to reconciliation and pledge to address violence on campus.
Why moose hide? The inspiration came from the land, from the loving relationship between a father and daughter, from the stretch of highway known as the “Highway of Tears” where violence has taken so many loved ones, and from the spirit of the moose. Wearing the moose hide pin signifies your commitment to honour, respect, and protect the women and children in your life and to work together to end violence against women and children.
Indigenous Education & Engagement (IE&E) is providing official moose hide pins for Humber community members to pin on their clothing and show their support.
- Tuesday, May 10 – 10 am to 2 pm – Lakeshore Campus, Welcome Centre 301
- Wednesday, May 11 – 10 am to 2 pm – North Campus, LRC 2136
You can also join the conversation on social media by posting your own image and pledge to stand up against violence towards women and children. If you made a campaign pledge last year, please include what you did over the past year to fulfill your pledge.
