Elimination of Racial Discrimination - 21 March 

The International Day for the Elimination of Racial Discrimination is an opportunity for women and men to renew their commitment to building a world of justice, equality, and dignity, where racial discrimination has no place. [...] 
On this day, we must recall that respect of others is essential to respect for ourselves and our own communities and that humanity is a single family, brought together by shared aspirations and a common destiny. Lasting peace can only be built on the equality and dignity of every woman and man - regardless of ethnic, religious, gender, socioeconomic or other background. [...] 
The fight against discrimination is one we must all lead, every day, through our own actions - but, together, we can multiply our efforts to build a more just, equal world of dignity for all women and men.
