Tuesday, June 13th, 2017 is International Albinism Awareness Day. There will be activities around the world to raise positive awareness of albinism on this day, which is officially backed by the United Nations.

If you or someone in your family have albinism and you live in Northern Ireland or the Republic of Ireland, Scotland or Wales, would you like to spread a positive message about living with albinism by joining our media campaign?

We need articulate spokespeople to talk about what albinism means for themselves and their children on or around International Albinism Awareness Day by speaking to both print and broadcast media.

There are many myths and misconceptions about albinism – here’s your chance to help address them and let the public know the realities of life with albinism.

If you would like to take part in our media campaign this year, please contact our media co-ordinator Andrew Bennett email: andrew.bennett@albinism.org.uk as soon as possible.

Your help will be much appreciated.
