“Zero Discrimination Day” … March 1, 2014!


~~Today (1st March) is Zero Discrimination Day~~

Zero Discrimination Day is the opportunity to celebrate everyone’s
right to live a full and productive life with dignity – no matter what
they look like, where they come from or whom they love.

By joining hearts and voices, individuals, communities and
societies can transform the world every day and everywhere.

Zero Discrimination Day is a moment to highlight how everyone can
become informed and promote tolerance, compassion and peace.

Support an end to HIV-related stigma and discrimination!

~~WHAT DISCRIMINATION LOOKS LIKE IN 2014~~

Discrimination is a violation of human rights. It is illegal, immoral,
hurtful and dehumanizing. Too many people around the world
face unequal treatment because of their race, religion, nationality,
sexual orientation or identity, disability, gender or age.

Discrimination can happen anywhere: at work, at school, at home
and in the community. Discrimination doesn’t just hurt individuals
or groups of people — it hurts everyone.

There are many things which can be done to counter
discrimination and encourage acceptance; speaking up when
something is wrong; raising awareness; supporting people who
have been discriminated against; and promoting the benefits of
diversity.

    Many people bring up the problem, but few provide answers. This is an answer that starts with us as individuals. Thank you for sharing it.

  2. Yes………“There are many things which can be done to counter discrimination”:

    speaking up when something is wrong

    Here is an example:

    In this story from Cracking the Codes: The System of Racial Inequity, a film from World Trust, author and educator Joy DeGruy shares how her sister-in-law uses her white privilege to stand up to systemic inequity.

      • Hi, Yahtzee …. missed you really!!! I’m doing good. The pain is still there but lessened. The worst is getting up in the AM. Injections were effective … but not totally. I finished my 3-4th PT round last Friday.

        Will start “wellness” next week. Follow up appts are open … call if I need to.
        So far so good. Thanks for asking!!

        Hugs! Tight .. love ya!! 🙂

      • So glad you are going to post the video as an article and reach a wider audience.
        Praying for the end of discrimination of any type.

        I will send you an extra energy-wave lift every morning to help you get up in a.m., hopefully with less pain. Glad you are reaching the “wellness” stage of your treatment.

        Hugs 🙂

      • It is an important one to watch, isn’t it?

        There IS so much we can do to help and raise awareness of the discrimination and stereotyping that exists in our society.

        Have you seen these 2 videos?
