March 21: International Day for the Elimination of Racial Discrimination

"Today we are witnessing a surge of intolerance, racist views and hate-driven violence. In these tumultuous times, we must stand up for rights and dignity for all, and for diversity and pluralism. We must speak out against anti-Semitism, anti-Muslim bigotry and other forms of hate. An assault on one minority community is an attack on all."

UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon
