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..
