Join the fight against discrimination. Stop the stigma! March 1 is Zero Discrimination Day and HIV Advocates invites you to join this movement. Open up and reach out!
HIV Advocates, a global initiative that aims to share news, experiences, strategies and new tools that aim to energize human rights movements and communities fighting HIV/AIDS, is encouraging everyone to share their thoughts about the fight against discrimination. What does discrimination mean to you? How important is zero discrimination in your life? How does discrimination impact your life as well as the lives of the people who matter to you? What do you think society should do in order to stop this?
By joining the Zero Discrimination Day celebration on March 1, people will be more aware of the ongoing battle that denies people of their human rights or social participation. One way to take part on March 1 is to thank somebody who has inspired you through tolerance and diversity. HIV Advocates also urges people to show how they want to fight the stigma.
“Be inspired by the butterfly, the transformative symbol for zero discrimination and take part in an activity to express your support for zero discrimination. You might swim like a butterfly, bake a butterfly cake, sing a butterfly song. Be as creative as you like,” according to HIV Advocates.
Supported by Levi Strauss Foundation and powered by B-Change Foundation, HIV Advocates encourages existing and would-be activists to explore the power of social media and other Internet avenues to help spread the message across – that discrimination and stigma against people with HIV/AIDS no longer have any place in society!
