What can I do to be an advocate?
The discrimination of people with albinism in Tanzania, Africa and around the world needs to stop. The good news is, you can do something about it. Be part of the solution by helping us change the world, one step at a time.

Here are a few ways to begin your advocacy - and we'd love to hear your ideas too.

Have a viewing party

Invite people to a film screening to build awareness, and hold a discussion afterwards. Hand out copies of the About Us or MythBusting Brochures.

Viewing suggestions:

Host a book club

Get some friends together to read a book about the issues facing people with albinism.  You can host a book club discussion in person or virtually.

Book suggestions:

  • Beyond the Pale 
    Part memoir, part cultural critique, and part genetic travelogue. It is a brave, intimate investigation into the secret histories that each of us carries in our genes. Order from Amazon
  • Golden Boy – A Novel
    A shocking human rights tragedy brought to light in a story of heartbreak and triumph. Order from Amazon
