The National Assembly Against Racism also has a number of local organisations and specialist wings in order maximise effectiveness in the fight against racism:
Student Assembly Against Racism
SAAR is the student wing of the National Assembly Against Racism and exists to ensure students are active in the fight against racism on campus and in the community. SAAR wants to unite all students against the BNP in the face of the increasing rise of the far right, campaign against racist attacks and murders, end racist policing, campaign for full implementation of the Lawrence report, oppose racism in education, defend asylum rights and for increased black representation.
If you are interested in our campaigns, setting up a group or holding a freshers' stall in your college or university, get in touch and get involved!

Lesbian And Gay Coalition Against Racism
LAGCAR was set up to create a visible anti-racist voice of lesbian and gay men, and to help forge the unity needed to defeat racism, homophobia and bigotry. The nailbombings of Brick Lane, Brixton and Soho demonstrated that the Black and LGB communities are targeted by fascists like nailbomber David Copeland. Racism, homophobia and the activities of the fascist right are on the rise across Europe. The need is now more than ever to show unity of action between the Black, Jewish and LGB communities against the far right which are gaining political power across Europe.
The NAAR has many different regional and local groups, the campaign against racism in specific areas. If you are interested in getting involved contact the following:
