Everyone deserves to have the same opportunities to live a happy, healthy, and successful life, yet inequalities are rising between social classes, rural and urban populations, and people of different genders, ethnicities, and abilities. It's our responsibility to make sure everyone around us is treated with respect and is able to live a fulfilled life.
