Zero Discrimination Day is a day to celebrate the right of everyone to live a full, well, and productive life—and live with dignity and free from discrimination.
The Zero Discrimination Day 2022 campaign challenges people to act against laws in their country and local communities that deny individuals’ human rights or essential services, simply because of who they are, what they do, or who they love. Ending discrimination and changing laws is the responsibility of us all. Everyone can play a part in ending discrimination and can try to make a difference, in ways both big and small.
Five actions for individuals
- Highlight discriminatory laws, so we can all advocate for change—post your initiatives for zero discrimination on social media.

- Demand change from your parliamentarian, ombudsperson or human rights organization.
- Start a petition to change the law.
- Donate time, money or expertise to an organization that is working for law reform, or start one yourself.
