Zero Discrimination Day

Shared on behalf of our friends from County Durham and Darlington Fire & Rescue Service:

Zero Discrimination day is an annual worldwide event that promotes diversity and recognises that everyone counts. The butterfly is a symbol for Zero Discrimination Day.

Organisations like the United Nations (UN) actively promote the day with various activities to celebrate everyone’s right to live a full life with dignity regardless of age, gender, sexuality, nationality, ethnicity, skin colour, height, weight, profession, education, and beliefs.

Many countries have laws against discrimination but it’s still a problem in all layers of society in every country in the world. Many countries have and still use discrimination as a way of governing.

The symbol for Zero Discrimination Day is the butterfly, widely used by people to share their stories and photos as a way to end discrimination and work towards positive transformation.
