International Day for the Elimination of Racial Discrimination

Video statement by Volker Türk, UN High Commissioner for Human Rights

More than half a century ago, the world made a promise.

To end racial discrimination.

To end the humiliation.

And to come together, inspired by the ambition that the world could be more safe, more fair, and more inclusive.

Today, and every day, we remember the victims of racism.

We honour every person who continues to raise their voice and fight for change.
