The Community Alliance Aganist Racism is a project initiated by a collective of organisations and individuals who have experienced racism. Spearheaded by AkiDwA, the project was established in July 2021 and officially launched by Minister Roderic O’Gorman in October 2022. CAAR is dedicated to developing a community empowerment intervention that supports victims and works towards the prevention of racial abuse and discrimination, aligning efforts based on anti-racist principles. The primary goal of CAAR is to challenge attitudes and stereotypes that perpetuate racism by fostering dialogue and raising awareness. This initiative aims to cultivate an appreciation for a new Ireland where everyone feels respected, protected, and integral to society.
