Each year, 21 March is observed around the globe as the International Day for the Elimination of Racial Discrimination and marks the loss of life in 1960 at Sharpeville in South Africa.
Christchurch City Council supports Race Relations Day for the contribution it makes to a key goal for the city: A diverse and inclusive community. Traditionally, the Council supports a range of events to promote diversity and inclusion. Check BeThere website (external link) for updates.
