Background information on International Day for the Elimination of Racial Discrimination
In 1966, March 21 was declared “International Day for the Elimination of Racial Discrimination” by the United Nations. In 1979, this commemorative day was enhanced by the invitation of the United Nations to its member states to organize weeks of action and solidarity with the opponents and victims of racial discrimination.
In Germany, the weeks of action have been hosted and coordinated by Interkultureller Rat until 2014, when a non-profit foundation was inaugurated specifically for the task. Further background information on the weeks of action and the International Day for the Elimination of Racial Discrimination can be found on the foundation’s website.
