Our Commitment

We aim to collect 500,000 signed petitions from people affected by vitiligo and their supporters to present to the United Nations.

Petitions will be collected by and stored at VR Foundation, 1 Penn Plaza, #6205 New York, NY 10119, USA, until we reach the number of signatures required to initiate the change. You may reach us at either toll free 1-855-966-3555 or via email info@25June.org

Visitors who are under 13 years of age should ask their parent or legal guardian before signing the petition letter.

Why Is It Important

There are a lot of people who don't want you to stand up for your rights and demand a cure. They say vitiligo is not life threatening and not contagious, and you must embrace a life of a pariah, hiding yourself from sunlight and from the society.

Vitiligo is an under-researched disease resulting in milky white skin patches on the skin. The breadth and complexity of the disease require international collaboration in therapy development. The severity of the disease calls for national healthcare support.

So, speak up for your condition and your rights. Sign the letter to tell the UN Secretary-General that you want recognition and support. It would be appreciated if you could give every member of your family or group an opportunity for signing.

Signatures count

We have collected 503192 signatures of the target 500000 (100.64%). Now let’s get 1 million signatures!
