The Moose Hide Campaign, a movement uniting men against violence towards women and children, will be holding a gathering and day of fasting in Prince George on Wednesday.
A variety of presentations, workshops and cultural activities will be held at University of Northern British Columbia, College of New Caledonia, the Prince George Native Friendship Centre, Hadih House, and the Fire Pit Cultural Drop-In Centre.
The Moose Hide Campaign was started by a father and daughter after a moose hunting trip in their traditional territory along Highway 16 - the Highway of Tears - in northwestern British Columbia.
It has grown from a single event to events across Canada, including Prince George.
Participants are encouraged to wear a moose hide pin that signifies their support in honouring, respecting, and protecting women and children.
Events at UNBC begin with free registration at 8:30 a.m., followed by opening ceremonies, keynote speakers, presentations, and a catered lunch at the Gathering Place.
Afternoon events take place at CNC and PGNFC with presentations and workshops.
A breaking fast celebration will also be held at PGNFC, 5 p.m. start.
