In February 2020, the Douglas Students’ Union signed on to 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 this moose hide 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.


Goals:

The goal of the campaign is to end violence towards women and children. To help achieve this, the Moose Hide Campaign will distribute 10 Million Moose Hide squares across Canada.

  • We will stand up with women and children and we will speak out against violence towards them.
  • We will support each other as men and we will hold each other accountable.
  • We will teach our young boys about the true meaning of love and respect, and we will be healthy role models for them.
  • We will heal ourselves as men and we will support our brothers on their healing journey.
  • We encourage you to Take Action, Make the pledge, and Stand up to end violence towards women and children.

What can you do?

One of the most important things that you can do to help end violence against Women and Children is to promote gender equity, healthy relationships, and positive ideas of masculinity by speaking out against gender-based violence.


Indigenous women are three times more likely to experience domestic violence than non-Indigenous women, and three times more likely than non-Indigenous women to be killed by someone they know.  Too many of our wives, daughters, sisters, aunties, mothers, grandmothers are not safe in their own home.  Too many have been murdered or are missing.  It is time for us to change this.

This cycle of violence came from residential schools, racism against our Peoples, and colonization.  It was never in our culture to do violence to the women and children in our families and communities, it was always our responsibility to protect them.

Many efforts, projects, and strategies are now under-way throughout the country to change this reality, but we can and need to do more.  Silence is not good enough, and simply being a non-abuser is not good enough.  We must speak up and take action, and we need to support each other as Indigenous and non-Indigenous men.
