International Day for the Elimination of Racial Discrimination 

The United Nations is taking advantage of this day to launch a promotional message around a culture of tolerance, equality and openness by calling on everyone to fight against racial prejudice and intolerant attitudes.

One of the goals is to “reaffirm the importance of full respect for the rights to freedom of expression and peaceful assembly and the protection of civic space…” The theme “FightRacism” (#FightRacism) wants to engage the public in a process of solidarity by involving young people in particular.

The Congregation of the Sisters of the Holy Names of Jesus and Mary (SNJM) is very sensitive to this cause, which is part of its mission to promote justice and eliminate inequalities while actively working to promote interculturality. The SNJM has issued a declaration against racism in the wake of the events of 2020.

The United Nations website provides a lot of relevant information on the subject.
