Description

"This book is a guide for every young person who believes in a better world for all"—Malala Yousafzai

Adults are aware of their universal human rights of freedom and equality, but children often are ignorant of the rights they possess before reaching the age of majority. Enter Know Your Rights, written in partnership with Amnesty International, Angelina Jolie, and Geraldine Van Bueren.

Know Your Rights details the rights promised in the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child, starting with the history of child rights, and providing a clear description of the types of child rights, the young activists from around the world who fought to defend them, and how readers can stand up for their own rights.

Know Your Rights and Claim Them is an excellent guide to rights and social activism for young people. It clearly states the rights of children, history of these rights, and pursuing change and justice. It gives examples of how young activists have made a difference all over the world and gives teenagers a starting point to becoming an informed and effective activist. I especially loved the third section on claiming one's rights, which focuses on being a successful activist. It gives detailed instructions on how to plan a campaign, write politicians, debate others, and provides information about peacefully protesting, etc. Thank you Lerner Publishing Group and NetGalley for providing this ARC.
