Welcome to the Coalition for Racial Equality and Rights (CRER)
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..

About the One Scotland Campaign
Scotland believes in equality for all. One Scotland celebrates the progress we’ve already made on equality whilst recognising the work still to be done to achieve a truly inclusive society.
One Scotland embodies the inclusive society we want in Scotland, where equality and human rights are respected and every individual and minority group feels valued.
Despite the great progress made to date, discrimination and prejudice do still exist in Scotland. The Scottish Government continues to work hard to promote equality in Scotland, realising the full potential of human rights in all areas of life.
On 6 November 6 2014 a new phase of the One Scotland campaign was launched by the Cabinet Secretary for Equalities.
