In this broooket we will shouw the types of discrimination and how to avoid it

Religious discrimination is valuing or treating a person or group differently because of what they do or do not believe or because of their feelings towards a given religion

Ageism or age discrimination is discrimination and stereotyping based on the grounds of someone's age. It is a set of beliefs, norms, and values which used to justify discrimination or subordination based on a person's age

Though gender discrimination and sexism refer to beliefs and attitudes in relation to the gender of a person, such beliefs and attitudes are of a social nature and do not, normally, carry any legal consequences.

In human social affairs, discrimination is treatment or consideration of, or making a distinction in favor of or against, a person or thing based on the group, class, or category to which the person or thing is perceived to belong rather than on individual merit.

Stop Discrimination

Discrimination against people with disabilities in favor of people who are not is called ableism or disablism.

For Parents or caregivers
The greatest prevention plan may come from parents. Parents must set good examples in their attitudes, words and behavior towards others. Children are able to recognize differences and hold sectarian prejudices from the age of three.

For young people
It is very important that you realize that the world is a very big place and there are humans living in many other places, very far from you. Because of that, people do things differently and are brought up differently. That means what you think is cool may not be so for another person, because of where they come from. Being different is a good thing.

Preventing discrimination

Children are never born racists or with discriminatory minds. They learn these behaviors from people and events around them. If parents or care givers tell them things that make them see people in a different light, they will grow up with that idea, and it may be difficult to correct when they are adults.
