JOB TITLE: Digital Designer
TERM: 6-MONTH CONTRACT (WITH POSSIBILITY FOR EXTENSION)
WHO WE ARE
The Moose Hide Campaign is a grassroots movement of Indigenous and non-Indigenous men and boys who are standing up against violence towards women and children. The Campaign calls upon all Canadians to wear and share the moose hide pins as a way to help end violence against all woman and children. Wearing the moose hide pin signifies your commitment to honour, respect and protect the women and children in your life and speak out against gender-based and domestic violence. The Moose Hide Campaign started in 2011 along the Highway of Tears in Northern B.C. – where so many women have gone missing or been murdered. Since then, annual gatherings and ceremonial fasts have taken place and more than two million squares of moose hide have been distributed in thousands of communities, governments, schools, and organizations across Canada. The Moose Hide Campaign has a priority of supporting learner-centered educational experiences on healthy gender safety, Indigenous issues and reconciliation.
