Kerry Cavers (she/her)
Founder and President
Kerry is an anti-racism advocate, facilitator, community builder and founder of Moms Against Racism (Canada). She is a biracial, Black presenting, cis-gender woman of African, English, Swedish. Kerry is a mom to 3 young kiddos under the age of 10; two of whom are white presenting and one who is Black presenting.
Born on the traditional territory of the Songhees First Nation, now known as Victoria, BC, Kerry grew up with her white mother, in a predominantly white town, disconnected from her Black heritage. Over the last twenty years she has been on a journey to discover who she is, reconnect to culture, and learn the stories of her ancestors. This included earning a degree in Psychology, becoming certified in Emotional Intelligence, and years of personal development programs, workshops, and trainings.
Kerry found many of her friends wanted to discuss racism and how to raise anti-racist children. Although emotionally taxing, she welcomed these opportunities for dialogue and to influence a shift in understanding. Wanting to inspire change on a larger scale, she created MAR Canada to bring Moms, and those in mothering roles, together in a mutual aid movement to fight systemic racism.
