June 25: World Vitiligo Day

It’s V-Day, and I don’t mean Valentine’s. June 25 is set aside to create awareness about vitiligo and the social stigma associated with it around the world. As part of a campaign, we are petitioning to have June 25 officially recognized by the United Nations as part of a healthcare and education initiative for those with vitiligo and the community, and be observed as World Vitiligo Day.

Today is the perfect day to revive a post, particularly I Am Not My Skin Color, where I wrote about my own skin discoloration. Please read, share and sign the petition for recognition and support of vitiligo awareness.
