PHOENIX – Arizona Gov. Jan Brewer has signed a bill targeting a school district's ethnic studies program, hours after a report by United Nations human rights experts condemned the measure

Canadian Anti-racism Education and Research Society - CAERS

1 Introduction

The Canadian Anti-racism Education and Research Society grew out of the attempts by a number of social activists and academics to organize farm workers in British Columbia, Canada. During the 1970s, farm workers in Canada received below minimum wage and were not covered by labour standards legislation, and transportation laws. Many farm workers were the easy prey of unscrupulous farm owners and labour contractors. When a number of farm workers died through ingesting pesticides they thought was water, a movement was created to organize workers.
