Such beautiful wise kind words. Made me cry! Listen!

Actor, Duane Howard talks about why the BC-born Moose Hide Campaign to end violence towards women and girls is important to him.
"Aboriginal women are three times more likely to experience domestic violence than non-Aboriginal women, and three times more likely than non-Aboriginal women to be killed by someone they know. Too many wives, daughters, sisters, aunties, mothers, and grandmothers are not safe. Too many have been murdered or missing. Too many are being abused by members of the RCMP, by other police forces, and in public institutions.

“Many efforts, projects, and strategies are now under-way throughout the province to change this reality, but as men we can and need to do more” says Paul Lacerte, Organizer and Executive Director of the BC Assn of Aboriginal Friendship Centres. “We need to speak up and take positive action, and we need to support each other as Aboriginal men in our healing journey”.

In order to spread this Movement, Aboriginal and non-Aboriginal men are participating in a Moose Hide Campaign in which they wear a small patch of moose hide to symbolize their commitment to stand up against violence towards Aboriginal women and children.

"The Moose Hide campaign is a grassroots movement of Aboriginal and non-Aboriginal men who are standing up against violence towards Aboriginal women and children."
