No one should ever be discriminated against because of their age, sex, gender identity, sexual orientation, disability, race, ethnicity, language, health (including HIV) status, geographical location, economic status or migrant status, or for any other reason. Unfortunately, however, discrimination continues to undermine efforts to achieve a more just and equitable world. Many people face discrimination every day based on who they are or what they do.
People are different, people have different abilities, have different characteristics, traits of character, have different origins, have found their way to politics along different pathways—well, that is diversity, which is good.
Angela Merkel quoted by The New Yorker, March 2017
