International Albinism Awareness Day is Sunday, June 13, 2021

Apr 17, 2021

International Albinism Awareness Day (IAAD) is on Sunday, June 13, 2021. This year’s theme and hashtag is #StrengthBeyondAllOdds. On this day, we would like to showcase how resilient and powerful those with albinism are. It is a day to share our voice, show our beauty, and advocate against stereotypes of the albinism community. All individuals with Hermansky-Pudlak Syndrome have albinism, but not everyone with albinism has HPS. On this day, all individuals with albinism stand together!

IAAD was established by the UN on December 18, 2014, so that every June 13th would be International Albinism Awareness Day, focusing on the global push for advocacy of those individuals with albinism. For more information regarding IAAD please visit: https://www.albinism.org/iaad/
