The Live and Let Live Campaign is an opportunity for persons who have faced discrimination to tell their stories. This campaign is in an effort to fight against discrimination. The Coordinator for the campaign, Doctor Minerva Pinelo, told us that awareness of discrimination is the first step.
Members of the Belize Association of Persons with Diverse Abilities (BAPDA) also attended the campaign. They are a group of people who no doubt face discrimination during their daily lives. The president of BAPDA, Roxanne Marin, stated that they constantly encourage their members to stand up in the face of discrimination.
The campaign also has a website at liveandletlive.com. According to Pinelo, the website is interactive, and the videos played at today’s event will be available for viewing by anyone. Additionally, the Pinelo hopes to collect more testimonials from persons facing discrimination.
