Discrimination strikes to the heart of what it is to be human. Someone's rights are being violated just because of who they are or what they believe. Discrimination is destructive and contributes to the development of inequality.

Regardless of race, ethnicity, nationality, class, caste, religion, belief, sex, gender, language, sexual orientation, gender identity, sex characteristics, age, health, or other status, we all have the right to be treated equally.

Nonetheless, we frequently hear devastating cases of people who have been treated cruelly just because they belong to a "different" group than those in positions of privilege or power.

Discrimination occurs when a person is unable to enjoy his or her human rights or other legal rights on an equal basis with others because of an unjustified distinction made in policy, law or treatment. Amnesty International’s work is rooted in the principle of non-discrimination. Working with communities across the world, we challenge discriminatory laws and practices to ensure all people can enjoy their rights on an equal basis.
