National Youth Ambassador Sage Lacerte says the Moose Hide Campaign started eleven years ago as a way to encourage more men and boys to be more aware about violence against Indigenous women and girls.
It has since evolved into a national movement that invites all Canadians to help end violence against all women and children.
Lacerte shares what the upcoming Moose Hide Campaign Day will entail. She explains this is an opportunity that they provide all Canadians to hold a one day fast so no food and no water for one day from sun up to sun down and fasting is a traditional practice, around the world many people and cultures practice fasting. She says they use it in part as a way to set your intentions and commitments to yourself. She notes they have a key note from the Honorable Murray Sinclair, they have workshops throughout the day and then a fast breaking ceremony and keynote address from their co-founders.
The Moose Hide Campaign Day will be held virtually Thursday and for more Information visit www.moosehidecampaign.ca.
