Stand with Okanagan College today for National Moose Hide Campaign Day, a grassroots movement of Indigenous and non-Indigenous men and boys who are standing up against violence towards women and children.
The campaign invites everyone, including women, to wear a moose hide pin today. Wearing the pin signifies your commitment to honour, respect and protect women and children and to work together to end violence.
This day is an opportunity to learn about domestic and gender-based violence and how people can help prevent them. It is a cross-cultural learning opportunity to build understanding of Indigenous cultures. Everyone is welcome at Moose Hide Campaign events.
The campaign, now in its 10th year, has pledged to distribute 10 million moose hide square pins across Canada this year – with hopes of opening up 10 million discussions about ending violence against women and children.
Moose hide pins and available on campus - if you are on campus today and need a moose hide pin, visit your campus' Aboriginal Services department. Additionally, the Trades Office in Kelowna has pins available for pick up. If you don't have a pin, don't worry - Okanagan College has a virtual background available for download to use during your virtual meetings today.
