INTERNATIONAL COMMISSION TO COMBAT RELIGIOUS RACISM

The International Commission to Combat Religious Racism (ICCRR) is a non-profit organization founded to study and combat "religious racism." 

What is Religious Racism?

Religious racism is a form of religious intolerance or discrimination that is rooted in racialized prejudices against a particular faith or faiths. The concept of religious racism comes from Brazil, where activists use the phrase “racismo religioso” to refer to discrimination against Afro-Brazilian religions such as Candomblé and Umbanda.

Religious racism impacts many faiths across the globe; however, the ICCRR focuses on discrimination against African and African diaspora religions because this is one of the least studied and least recognized of types of racism or religious intolerance. Visit our “About Us” page to see a list of common limitations on the rights and freedoms of devotees of African and African diaspora religions.
