Moosehide Provincial Gathering and Day of Fasting
February 15 @ 7:00 am - 3:30 pmFree
On Feb.15th, 2018, Indigenous and non-Indigenous men and women will meet for the 7th consecutive year to stand together to end violence against women and children. As part of this day of action, thousands of men from across the province will also take part in the One Day Fast. The One Day Fast is for men to refrain from eating or drinking from sunrise to sunset. This simple act of sacrifice is a way of showing empathy for women who endure violence in their lives and for fasters to demonstrate the strength of their commitment to end violence against Women and Children.
In addition to the event in Victoria, multiple regional events are taking place on February 15, 2018 as part of the Provincial Gathering and Day of Fasting. Stay tuned for regional event details and schedules.
Everyone wishing to participate in the campaign on February 15 is asked to register.
