Moms Against Racism Canada was created in 2020 as a safe, brave space for Moms, and those in mothering roles, to root out racist biases and learn how to raise anti-racist children.
We are inclusive to all “mother individuals” whether by birthing, biological, adoption, foster, surrogate, non-binary, two-spirited, LGBTQI+, godmothers, grandmothers, aunts, primary caregivers, educators, and all others who feel the term “mothering” describes their roles.
With compassion and bravery, we are committed to identifying and dismantling racism as we encounter it.
