International Albinism Awareness Day 13th June 2023
This year’s theme, “Inclusion is Strength,” builds on last year’s theme of “United in making our voice heard.” Its aim is to ensure the inclusion of the voices of persons with albinism in all sectors of life. It emphasises the importance of inclusion of a diversity of groups from both within and outside the albinism community.
Specifically, this year’s theme highlights the importance and benefits of:
Including a broad spectrum of persons with albinism in albinism-related discussions, including youth, women, children, older persons, LGBTQ+ and persons with albinism of all races and ethnic backgrounds;
Collaborating and embracing albinism within the disability movement, and in other sectors where decisions affect persons with albinism; and
Seeking synergies with human rights groups and other groups from outside the albinism movement.
Everyone is welcome to use this theme especially on and around the Day itself: 13 June. You are also welcome to choose your own theme.
