Coalition for Racial Equality & Rights

Welcome to the Coalition for Racial Equality and Rights


Formerly known as Glasgow Anti Racist Alliance (GARA), CRER is focussed on helping to eliminate racial discrimination and harassment and in promoting racial justice across Scotland. Over the years CRER has had a key role in advocating, campaigning and influencing developments to promote racial equality. It has been effective in responding to a broad range of interests needed to make an impact upon deep rooted issues and respond to the needs of communities. CRER has experience of anti-racist work covering areas such as youth empowerment, community engagement, pioneering research as well as helping to mainstream race equality across the public sector in Scotland.

In its work CRER takes a rights based approach, promoting all the relevant international, regional and national human rights and equality conventions and legislation. 

This website contains detailed information on our aims and objectives; what we do; the services we provide; the projects we manage; the events that we organise and host; our publications and much more.

"All human beings are born free and equal, without any distinction of any kind, such as race, colour, sex, language, religion, political or other opinion, nation or social origin, property, birth or other status."
