Zero Discrimination Day, celebrated on March 1, is observed annually by the United Nations and other international organizations. Zero Discrimination Day aims to encourage equality before the law and in practice throughout all of the member countries of the United Nations.
In February 2017, UNAIDS called on people to elevate awareness about zero discrimination, and to speak up and prevent discrimination from standing in the way of achieving one's ambitions, goals and dreams.
Zero Discrimination Day stresses that no one should ever be discriminated against because of their age, sex, gender identity, sexual orientation, disability, race, ethnicity, language, health (including HIV) status, geographical location, economic status or migrant status, or for any other reason. Unfortunately, however, discrimination continues to undermine efforts to achieve a more just and equitable world. Many people face discrimination every day based on who they are or what they do.
The awareness color for Equality and Liberty is Orange.
