Event description
Join us for an informative panel discussion in support of the Moose Hide Campaign.

About this event

Join us on International Women’s Day for a conversation with three incredible leaders who will discuss the realities of gender-based violence in communities and teach us about the spiritual pathway to wellness and healing: the Red Road.

To uphold its commitment to reconciliation and addressing violence on campus, SFU has become a Moose Hide Campaign (MHC) Ambassador. MHC is a grassroots movement of Indigenous and non-Indigenous men and boys who are standing up against violence towards women and children.
