Zero Discrimination Day: 1 March 2016

By Elaine Pearson

Zero Discrimination Day is a UNAIDS campaign of solidarity that stands up to racism, discrimination at work, discrimination at school, and other activities that reduce people's ability to participate fully and meaningfully in society. Around the world, this movement has garnered the support of many celebrities and prominent figures who want a world free of stigma and discrimination.

For this display I printed off a copy of this year's poster with a short description about the campaign. The butterflies were copied from the shape used on the official logo and include words encouraging tolerance and respect.

I am so pleased when others are inspired by the displays on this Blog. 
I like the way Rose directly challenged her students to read a book to challenge their thinking.
Here are her comments:

'Your Zero Discrimination display was inspiration for me as I'd never heard of this particular day, and with our racial issues at the forefront of the news, it is particularly apt.
So I quickly downloaded their posters etc and created this noticeboard and a display of relevant books in the library'.
