Race Relations Day

The International Day for the Elimination of Racial Discrimination is observed annually on 21 March. Every 21st of March the International Day for the Elimination of Racial Discrimination marks the 1960 Sharpeville Massacre when 69 black South African citizens – including 10 children – were shot to death by their own Police for protesting against racial apartheid laws.

Every year the Race Relations Commissioner assists and leads to facilitate a theme in observance of this day around New Zealand. In 2019 the theme is Te Rā Whanaungatanga.
