Kerry Cavers (she/her)

Founder and President

Kerry is a seasoned Community Builder and Founder of Moms Against Racism (Canada). She is a multiracial, cis-gender woman of African, English, Swedish, and Irish descent who identifies as Black. She is a mother to 3 young children under the age of 8; 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 and the stories of her ancestors. This included earning a degree in Psychology and years of personal development programs, workshops, and trainings. 

Kerry found many of her friends would come to her to discuss racism. 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.
