Aboriginal and non-Aboriginal men stand up against violence towards women and children

The annual Bear Hide Campaign March took place in downtown Mission on Friday morning.

The campaign is a grassroots movement of Aboriginal and non-Aboriginal men who are standing up against violence towards women and children.

This march signifies a commitment to honour, respect, and protect the women and children in your life and to work together with other men to end violence.

The march, which featured about 40 people, began at 11 a.m. in front of the Mission Friendship Centre and travelled along First Ave., down to Railway and back to the centre.

Drummers and supporters marched along the road showing their support and raising awareness for the Bear Hide Campaign.
