About The Discrimination Free Zone Foundation
The organization aims to end discrimination based on race, color, gender, nationality, religion, sexual orientation, age, or disability through the creation of Discrimination Free Zones throughout the world. The organization also has strong initiatives to support anti-bullying to help children and people in general to live in a non-bullying world. The organization promotes its message with branded wristbands, shirts, hats, signs, posters, stickers and other items that individuals wear, carry or display to show their support for this movement. By wearing or displaying the message you are creating your own Discrimination Free Zone. As the branded products become noticeable everywhere, individuals who wish to spread hate and judgment against others will come to realize that a willing audience for such damaging and offensive behavior disappears. Consequently, the attitudes will stop and, as a result, so too will the damaging behaviors and actions that can follow.
