FEMYSO’s message on the International Day for the Elimination of Racial Discrimination

On the 21st of March, we mark the importance of this date, the International Day for the Elimination of Racial Discrimination.

Today FEMYSO invites you all to reflect and learn from the past, working together for the present, in order to build a more equal world for our common futures.

Racial discrimination takes many forms and cannot be seen solely through the lens of the individual – an area of key work to eradicate discrimination from are the institutions that are there to represent all of us. From a lack of representation due to unconscious bias to draconian laws implemented by states in order to prevent individuals from being able to exert their religious identities. The time for talk is over, we must see action taken to deal with these endemic issues.

We at FEMYSO will continue our efforts on advocating against all forms of hate crimes, racism and discrimination, and push for more effective policies that reflect the seriousness of the matter. We will continue to work for a more diverse, cohesive and vibrant Europe.
