April 9 is the International Day of Pink
We invite everyone to make a difference and participate. The goal of the International Day of Pink is to bring this message across the world, through an international day of action that anyone can take part in.
Across the world discrimination continues to be the leading source of conflict. Discrimination includes ableism, ageism, classism, heterosexism, homophobia, racism, sexism, transphobia, among many other forms. Stereotypes (ideas) may lead to prejudices (attitudes/feelings) which may lead to discrimination (actions)and affect how we work, study and treat one another; they create barriers, bullying, harassment, hate and violence.
The International Day of Pink is more than just a symbol of a shared belief in celebrating diversity - it's also a commitment to being open minded, to being understanding of differences and to learning to respect each other.
