In honour of Moose Hide Campaign Day, taking place on May 12, 2022, Algoma University and Shingwauk Kinoomaage Gamig will be hosting events on all three Algoma University campuses in Brampton, Sault Ste. Marie and Timmins, both virtually and in person.
Moose Hide Campaign Day is a day of ceremony. It’s a day where all Canadians are called to join together to take a stand against violence towards women and children and to take practical steps for our collective journey of reconciliation.
What began eleven years ago with a small gathering of men and boys intent on raising awareness of the crisis of violence against Indigenous women and children has now become a national ceremony inviting all Canadians to join together to end violence against all women and children.
“Algoma University supports the Moose Hide Campaign, and on May 12th, we ask that you wear your Moose Hide pin and invite you to join us at one of our three Algoma University campuses for activities scheduled to commemorate this day,” shared Paul Sayers, Manager, Indigenous Community Relations, Training and Development. “Your support signifies your commitment to honour, respect, and protect the women and children in your life and to speak out against domestic and gender-based violence.”
