Renowned human rights organization Amnesty International partners with actor and activist Jolie and lawyer and children's rights expert Van Bueren to create this detailed look at child rights globally.
This timely book begins with a startling fact: The United States is the only one of the United Nations' 197 members that has never ratified the Convention on the Rights of the Child. Readers are then led through the history of child rights while also defining the rights every child has from birth. Special attention is paid to education access, LGBTQ+ rights, and discriminatory policies targeting marginalized groups, with examples such as Charlotte Donaldson, who founded the Scottish Gypsy Traveller Assembly at age 16, and Zulaikha Patel, who at age 13 helped lead a protest against racist policies at her South African high school. Other profiles of teen changemakers, including girls' education advocate Malala Yousafzai, water activist Autumn Peltier (Anishinaabe), and Thai environmentalist Khairiyah Rahmanyah, are woven throughout. Readers curious about how to create change in their communities will appreciate the activism guidance describing how to research an issue, persuasively talk about your cause, reach out to lawmakers, and organize a protest. The wide-ranging text also includes guidance on how to stay safe while attending a demonstration, internet safety, and what to do when stopped by the police. Black-and-white photos, lists, and bold headings break up the text and enhance readability.
