Zero Discrimination Day is an annual observance held on March 1st to promote and celebrate diversity, tolerance, and inclusion, and to raise awareness about discrimination and the negative impact it has on individuals and society.
When was the first Zero Discrimination day?
The day was first established by the United Nations in 2014, and since then it has been celebrated globally in a variety of ways. It is a day to recognize that everyone, regardless of their race, ethnicity, gender, sexual orientation, religion, or any other characteristic, has the right to live a full and healthy life without fear of discrimination.
The theme of Zero Discrimination Day changes each year, with past themes including “Make Some Noise for Zero Discrimination”, “End Discrimination Against Women”, and “Stand Up for Someone’s Rights Today”. The goal of the day is to inspire individuals and communities to take action to end discrimination, promote diversity and inclusion, and work towards a more just and equitable world.
Many organizations and individuals mark the day by organizing events and campaigns to raise awareness and promote tolerance and inclusivity. This may include educational events, rallies, social media campaigns, and other activities aimed at promoting equality and reducing discrimination.
Overall, Zero Discrimination Day serves as a reminder of the importance of treating others with respect and dignity, regardless of their differences, and working towards a world where everyone is valued and free from discrimination.
