Coalition for Racial Equality and Rights

CRER is a Scottish strategic racial equality charity, based in Glasgow. We are focused on working to eliminate racial discrimination and harassment and promote racial justice across Scotland. Over the years CRER has had a key role in advocating, campaigning, and influencing developments to promote racial equality. We have 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.

In 2001, The Coalition for Racial Equality and Rights (then known as the Glasgow Anti Racist Alliance) co-ordinated the first Black History Month programme in Scotland. Twenty years on the programme continues to grow with partners across community, voluntary and public sectors contributing dozens of events every October. This includes partners who have contributed since 2001 and partners who will contribute for the first time in 2021.
