Moose Hide Campaign Day

Moose Hide Campaign Day will be taking place on Thursday, May 16th, 2024.

"The Moose Hide Campaign began as a BC-born Indigenous-led grassroots movement to engage men and boys in ending violence towards women and children. (...) Wearing the pin signifies your commitment to honour, respect, and protect the women and children in your life and speak out against gender-based and domestic violence." Moose Hide Campaign Day will be taking place on Thursday, May 16th, 2024 and you can read more about the campaign here.

First Light Midwifery will have moose hide pins (vegan option available) at the front desk this week. Pick one up and wear it all year long to show your commitment to ending violence towards women and children.

While not highlighted in the campaign literature, First Light Midwifery would like to take this opportunity to recognize that, while some members of the LGBTQ+ community and two-spirit individuals may not identify as women, they should not be left out of campaigns addressing intimate partner, domestic and gender-based violence as they are disproportionately and significantly affected.
