Every year since 2015, global communities celebrate June 13 as International Albinism Awareness Day. A day established by a United Nation’s General Assembly resolution passed on December 18, 2014 to celebrate persons with albinism and their accomplishments throughout the world while raising awareness of albinism. As a team we will pause on June 13 to honour the mothers we have met in our work and the activists and advocates championing the rights of persons with albinism and their families. You too can join the virtual event by registering (for free) at https://www.albinismday.com/.
