Dignity first: Fighting racism and intolerance

Racism permeates all societies, hindering economic and social progress for millions of people around the world. Racial discrimination and intolerance take many forms—from religious and ethnic discrimination to the denial of human rights to women, migrants and people with disabilities—that can undermine the fabric of societies and lead to violence and, at worst, even genocide. Since its inception, the United Nations has strived to counter all forms of racial discrimination and intolerance. The Charter of the United Nations is based on the dignity and equality inherent in all human beings. The founding Member States—like those who came after them—pledged themselves to promote universal respect for and observance of human rights and fundamental freedoms for all without distinction as to race, gender, language or religion.
