This year’s theme, "Inclusion is Strength," builds on last year's theme of "United in making our voice heard." Its aim is to ensure the inclusion of the voices of persons with albinism in all sectors of life. It emphasises the importance of inclusion of a diversity of groups from both within and outside the albinism community.
Specifically, this year's theme highlights the importance and benefits of:
Including a broad spectrum of persons with albinism in albinism-related discussions, including youth, women, children, older persons, LGBTQ+ and persons with albinism of all races and ethnic backgrounds;
Collaborating and embracing albinism within the disability movement, and in other sectors where decisions affect persons with albinism; and
Seeking synergies with human rights groups and other groups from outside the albinism movement.
Everyone is welcome to use this theme especially on and around the Day itself: 13 June. You are also welcome to choose your own theme.

Did you know?
Albinism is a genetic condition inherited from both parents that occurs worldwide, regardless of ethnicity or gender.
The common lack of melanin pigment in the hair, skin and eyes of people with albinism causes vulnerability to sun exposure, which can lead to skin cancer and severe visual impairment.
As many as 1 in 5,000 people in Sub-Saharan Africa and 1 in 20,000 people in Europe and North America have albinism.
In some countries people with albinism suffer discrimination, poverty, stigma, violence and even killings.
In some countries, women who give birth to children with albinism are repudiated by their husbands, and their children abandoned or the victims of infanticide.
The movie industry has seldom portrayed people with albinism accurately, preferring to depict them as villains, demons or freaks of nature.
Violence against people with albinism is largely met by social silence and indifference, and is seldom followed by investigations or the prosecution of perpetrators.
