Fighting for Race Equality

21 March 2017

International Day for the Elimination of Racial Discrimination

For the celebration of the International Day for the Elimination of Racial Discrimination, on 21 March, the UN is suggesting that people engage in the campaign Stand up for Someone's Rights Today, launched on Human Rights Day 2016 to encourage actions in our daily lives to defend the human rights of others. A Westminster Hall debate organised by MP Dawn Foster will also be held on the day.

Other related UN initiatives include Let's Fight Racism!, and the International Decade for People of African Descent.
