Abstract:

“All human beings are born free and equal in dignity and rights.” Article 1 of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, 1948. Zero Discrimination Day is a chance to celebrate diversity and to reject discrimination. By joining our voices together, we can be part of a resounding call for compassion, tolerance and peace. More than 65 years after the United Nations General Assembly adopted the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, discrimination still scars our societies. It provokes prejudice, limits the life chances of millions of people and may cause abuse and violence.
