March 1 is now globally celebrated as Zero Discrimination Day.
1st March is now celebrated, globally, as Zero Discrimination Day. Under this year’s theme, “Remove laws that harm, create laws that empower”, we celebrate the right of everyone to live a full and productive life—and live it with dignity.
Zero Discrimination Day highlights how people can become informed about and promote inclusion, compassion, peace, and, above all, a movement for change. Zero Discrimination Day is helping to create a global movement of solidarity to end all forms of discrimination.
On Zero Discrimination Day this year, UNAIDS is highlighting the urgent need to take action to end the inequalities surrounding income, sex, age, health status, occupation, disability, sexual orientation, drug use, gender identity, race, class, ethnicity, and religion that continue to persist around the world.
