Lanark County hears presentation awareness campaign to end violence to women and children
At Wednesday’s Lanark County Community Services Committee meeting, councilors and staff heard from Bill Janes of Lanark County Mental Health.
Janes gave a presentation about the effort to battle violence against women and children.
Jane’s focus was on the Moose Hide campaign. It’s a grassroots Canadian movement of men and boys who are standing up against violence. All are asked to wear a small patch of moose hide signifying their active commitment to this cause.
“It’s time men were involved in solutions to this serious issue although it may be hidden to most people.” said Janes. “The Moose Hide project is a vehicle for men to step up and take responsibility in their roles to help end violence towards women and children. They can also be allies with women who have shouldered the lion’s share of this effort for far too long.”
Janes was joined by Lanark County Interval House’s Erin Lee in making the presentation. The two have a long-standing collaboration in support of the effort.
