My team and I worry that people often judge others based on their appearance. They focus on the superficial qualities, rather than getting to know someone and considering what’s beneath the surface.
This negative stereotyping can lead to discrimination. We know young people who have experienced discrimination based on their appearance and we feel it’s time to do something about it.
With Fixers, we want to help give others a glimpse of the true characters behind the costumes, encouraging them to get to know someone for who they are, rather than making snap and unfair judgements.
