International Coalition of Cities against Racism

The International Coalition of Cities against Racism was launched by UNESCO in 2004 to establish a network of cities interested in sharing experiences in order to improve their policies to fight racism, discrimination, xenophobia and exclusion. In North America, the program is represented by the Canadian Coalition of Municipalities against Racism and Discrimination (CMARD), but there apparently is no U.S. coalition participating.

UNESCO will launch an international coalition of cities against racism and discrimination at the 3rd World Forum on Human Rights in Nantes (France) which will take place from 30 June to 3 July. The international coalition will bring together the regional coalitions aleady launched by UNESCO.
