Moms Against Racism Canada, a federally registered non-profit, 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.
Children Are The Ways The World Begins Again And Again.

Our mission is to educate moms, and those in mothering roles, in anti-racism, cultural competence, and decolonization so they have the tools and support to dismantle racism within themselves, their families, and their communities.
Through mutual learning and gentle leadership we empower our members to become active allies in ending systemic racism.
We believe that as moms, and those in mothering roles, we have the power to change the world through the relationships we build with “our” children. We have the power to shape the next generations. We have the power to end racism where it starts - in the home.
There is no role in this world that has more influence over the future than a mothering role. Together we can choose to stop breathing hate and fear into our next generations and instead foster within them acceptance and love. Together we can choose to instill values of social justice - access, inclusion, equity, diversity, participation, and human rights - into the hearts and minds of our next leaders.
Together, in our children, we can build an equitable world for our descendants where everyone is valued.
