World Vitiligo Day 2015 celebrated by VRF
At the VR Foundation, we celebrated WORLD VITILIGO DAY 2015 in two great locations. Shazaad Games, Alina Dickey and other awesome team members engaged in public dialogue and collected signatures at the Union Square in New York.
Yan Valle, VR Foundation CEO, joined Valarie Molyneaux and other members of VITFriends, Dr. John Harris of UMass Medical Center Vitiligo Clinic to visit Massachusetts State House at the invitation of Rep. Gloria Fox and Mary-dith Tuitt.
I support the petition to designate June 25 as Vitiligo World Day and save millions of people worldwide from social isolation and persecution.
