We had our first successful World Vitiligo Day event in Washington, DC on June 25th, 2016. These are pictures from some of our youth representing for our vitiligo community. Our youth was happy to see many people like them with vitiligo. This gave them hope and a sense of pride to know that they can overcome and that there is now a strong global vitiligo community support system for them.
No matter if you are a youth or an adult or in a different country we all continue to speak the same message about being bullied or discriminated because of vitiligo.
Vitiligo is a condition that we have no control over. We hope that as we continue to work together that we can make a change to let people know that vitiligo is not a myth. We hope that with more partnership, sponsors and donors that we can get funding and accomplish our advocacy needs, change insurance perspectives, make changes to legislation, find a cure, and end bullying and discrimination. #WVD2016
