The Moose Hide Campaign was founded on the belief that men and boys need to step up and take action too, challenging behaviour that leads to violence and developing a culture of healthy masculinity.
Our ultimate goal is to end violence towards women and children. In order to achieve this, we challenge men and boys everywhere to:
- Stand up with women and children and speak out against violence towards them.
- Support each other as men and hold each other accountable.
- Teach boys the true meaning of love and respect and be healthy role models for them.
- Heal ourselves as men and support our brothers on their healing journey.
