VOICE FOR ACTION AGAINST RACISM.
ADNA e.V. Worms joins the United Nations and other active organisations to "raise our
voice to stop racism in all its forms".
Observed every 21 March, it commemorates the day when police in Sharpeville, South
Africa, opened fire and killed 69 people during a peaceful demonstration against apartheid’s
‘pass laws’ in 1960.
The International Day for the Elimination of Racial Discrimination recognises that injustices
and prejudices fuelled by racial discrimination take place every day.
For ADNA e.V. Worms and its members, this date is an opportunity to reflect on the fact
that, despite the progress made, indigenous peoples, racialised communities and religious
minorities around the world and in Germany in particular continue to face racism and
discrimination every day. It is also a day to recommit ourselves to the fight against all forms
of racial discrimination, injustice, systemic racism and hatred, in order to ensure a world
where everyone is respected, safe and has equal access to make a meaningful contribution
to all aspects of society.
