Sign the petition in support of people with albinism in Tanzania!

September 19, 2008

Concerned about the conditions that people with albinism are facing in Tanzania? Now you can help by signing the petition Positive Exposure and Under the Same Sun will present to the Tanzanian government next month.

  • Declaring your support for and solidarity with persons with albinism living in Tanzania during this time of dire crisis within the albinism commmunity.
  • Reminding persons within the Tanzanian albinism community that they are NOT ALONE and that many throughout the world are standing with them in defense of their fundamental human right to safety, security and freedom.
  • Calling on the Government of Tanzania to ensure that the 173 detainees presently in custody as suspects in the savage murders of at least 28 albinos during the last 18 months be brought before the courts and that those found guilty be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law.
  • Asking that the Government of Tanzania provides resources to the albinism community in terms of public education and protection with the goal to reduce the crippling discrimination albinos experience in their schools and communities.

We need 10,000 signatures, so please sign the petition and pass it along to your friends!

  1. To whom it may concern. I was born with albinism, and while it affects me with low vision, I studied as a occupational therapist and have helped many people with disabilities, I married and have four children and five grandchildren and none with albinism, I play lawn bowls and have played competition bowls for my state and country Australia, I help with Saint Vincent De Paul two day a week, and I feel that I do more than a lot of able people, so give the albinos a right to show what they can contribute to society and that includes Tanzania. Thank you, Ken Curtis.
