The International Day for the Elimination of Racial Discrimination is observed annually on March 21st. Racial and ethnic discrimination occur on a daily basis, hindering progress for millions of people around the world. Racism and intolerance can take on various forms: from denying individuals the basic principles of equality to fueling ethnic hatred that may lead to genocide, all of which can destroy lives and fracture communities.
