Canadian Anti-racism Education and Research Society a Non-profit Organization

Canadian Anti-Racism Education and Research Society (CAERS), is a non-profit organization that initially started as a group to organize farm workers in British Columbia to address issues regarding wages and workers protection legislation. The organization later formed B.C Organization to Fight Racism (BCOFR) in order to challenge rising of Ku Klux Clan (white supremacist group) and its recruiting attempts. BCOFR later changed its title to CAERS as it started widening its lobby against discrimination and gaining national recognition. CAERS tracks various hate groups and provides support to victims of hate crimes and discrimination while lobbying the government to put forth more effective anti-racism policies in affect. For more information in CAERS and their contribution to anti-racism efforts visit http://www.stopracism.ca/content/canadian-anti-racism-education-and-research-society-caers.
