Evening Reception: UN Day for the Elimination of Racial Discrimination

CRER logo21st March, 5.30pm – 7.30pm, Glasgow City Chambers

Join Coalition for Racial Equality and Rights and Glasgow City Council to mark the UN Day for the Elimination of Racial Discrimination.

Be the first to preview CRER’s forthcoming Virtual Museum of Empire, Colonialism, Slavery and Migration. This new educational resource is part of CRER’s campaign for better representation of Scotland’s Black History.

As well as looking to the future, we’ll reflect on the past, exploring progess in Scotland twenty years on from the publication of the Macpherson report into institutional racism.

Human rights lawyer Jelina Rahman will reflect on her experience working on racial justice issues in Scotland, including her co-ordinating role in the Chhokar Family Justice Campaign, which went on to influence the reform of Scotland’s centuries-old double jeopardy law.
