There is no room for racism!

Today March 21 is International Day for the Elimination of Racial Discrimination. We are encouraged to reflect on our identities and what we can each do as individuals to foster equality in our communities and in our workplace. 

Racial intolerance, discrimination and hatred of all kinds must end. Dignity means: You matter. I matter. We matter. We urge you all to raise your voices to denounce every act of racism, discrimination and hate. Be a catalyst for change. This has been a tough year for Afro and Asian Americans. It was awful hearing about the attacks against the Asian community and the horrible act that happened this week. We condemn acts of xenophobia, and violence. We pray for the victims. To the Asian community, we see you and stand with you.

Spread awareness about what's happening to Asians and Afros worldwide. Let’s all work together to build inclusive, more equitable communities. Every time we challenge racism and racial discrimination, we are one step closer to a more equal future for all. Together, we fight for change.

As every year on March 21, we mark a day standing up against racism. This is a call to action for people all over the world!  “Youth standing up against racism” is the 2021 theme. It engages the public through #FightRacism, which aims to foster a global culture of tolerance, equality and anti-discrimination. Read more here
