Developed by CASSA with the Anti-Hate Community Leaders Group, #EradicateHate and #EradicateHate2.0, are toolkits created for agencies serving racialized communities, religious minorities, allies, and community advocates to address and challenge online hate. These toolkits aim to build the capacity for digital literacy skills and provides content that support victims of online hate caused by racism and xenophobia.

CASSA, brought together community leaders in the Greater Toronto Area in response to the devastating Christchurch Mosque Shooting in New Zealand to take preliminary action in ensuring events like this never happen (again) in this country. With a call out that went to 50 different community leaders and organizational leaders in Toronto, Peel region, York region, and Durham region. Approximately 40+ organizations came together to form the Anti-Hate Community Leaders’ Group. Since its initiation, however, the group has expanded and includes organizations across Canada.
