Advocating for Zero Discrimination in Education on United Nations Zero Discrimination Day

Written by Gianna Chen and Panashe Marie Louise Mlambo

March 1 marks a significant day on the global calendar as the world commemorates United Nations Zero Discrimination Day. Led by the United Nations (UN) and supported by various international organisations, this annual observance aims to champion equality before the law and in practice across all UN member countries. Since its inception on March 1, 2014, Zero Discrimination Day has been a rallying cry for advocates and activists worldwide, urging society to confront and eliminate discrimination in all its forms. This year, Broken Chalk stands in solidarity with the UN and other organisations in this crucial endeavour.

Zero Discrimination Day is not just a symbolic gesture; it’s a call to action for all of us to actively combat discrimination and foster a more inclusive and equitable world. The significance of Zero Discrimination Day is particularly poignant for organisations like UNAIDS, which combat discrimination against people living with HIV/AIDS. Act as a reminder for worldwide leaders to withhold their commitment to protecting human rights. Discrimination remains a pervasive issue, hindering progress and perpetuating inequality in communities around the world.

Discrimination in education remains a pervasive issue globally, depriving countless individuals of their fundamental right to learn in an inclusive and equitable environment. On this important day, Broken Chalk reaffirms its commitment to challenging discriminatory practices and fostering a culture of acceptance and respect within educational institutions worldwide.

At Broken Chalk, we believe that education should be a beacon of hope and opportunity for all, regardless of race, gender, ethnicity, or any other characteristic, a sentiment held by the Broken Chalk shareholders, interns, and volunteers. Zero Discrimination Day serves as a reminder of the urgent need to address discriminatory barriers that hinder access and perpetuate inequality.

As we reflect on the importance of Zero Discrimination Day, let us reaffirm our commitment to building a world where we treat every individual with dignity, respect, and equality. Together, we can create a future where discrimination has no place, and every person has the opportunity to reach their full potential.” Panashe Marie Louise Mlambo

On United Nations Zero Discrimination Day, let us come together to reaffirm our commitment to building a world where every individual has the opportunity to learn, grow, and thrive, free from discrimination.
