Q. Why should my school participate in the Campaign?
The Moose Hide Campaign recognizes that children and youth are the future and the key to changing the fabric of Canadian society that still sees the reality of violence in our families and communities. Featuring the Moose Hide Campaign in your school is a powerful way to take a stand to end violence against women and children and practice reconciliation in action. Schools across Canada who are looking for practical and impactful ways to support reconciliation can join the Moose Hide Campaign movement, which supports implementation of the Truth and Reconciliation Commission of Canada Calls to Action, the United Nations Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples (UNDRIP) and the National Inquiry into Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women and Girls Calls for Justice.
Q. How can my school participate in the Campaign?
There are many different ways that your school can participate in the Moose Hide Campaign including using our new online learning resources, hosting Moose Hide Campaign events in your school and/or community, taking part in a 10 Men challenge and participating as a Partner School in the February 2021 National Gathering.
Q: What are the new Online Learning Resources that you are developing?
There are three new online learning modules with ready-to-implement lesson plans and activities for a full year of learning and action for positive change. Each module includes a guide for teachers to ensure that they have the skills and confidence to join the Campaign no matter where they are on their own learning journey. There will be an early years, a middle years and a high school years module available to schools across the country in September 2020.
Q: How do I order Moose Hide Pins and access your Learning Resources?
