@Washington National Mall
Children’s voices are the forgotten voices. We stand for them but sometimes forget that they can stand for us too. They can’t vote yet but that doesn’t mean that their voices don’t count. Anne Frank wasn’t silent. Malala Yousafzai, Kid President, and countless others are not silent. The youth will have a platform on July 15, 2017 at the National Mall in Washington, DC. Come stand with them. Mission To provide a platform for children and youth to speak about issues that affect their lives, communities, and the world around them. Goal To encourage youth to be civically engaged in their communities and to stand up for their basic human rights. Demand For the United States to ratify the United Nations Convention on the Rights of a Child. •Speaker topics (Including but not limited to) Homelessness Healthcare Hunger Disability Foster Care LGBTQ Child Abuse Literacy After we march there will be youth conventions held across the country where youth can vote for two youth delegates from their state to represent them in DC in the summer. The youth conventions will be held in November 2018.
