This virtual conference will take a deep look at the rights of children, and ways to improve the lives of children and communities.
Children may be our national treasure, but they aren’t always a national priority. The USA was once a world leader in promoting children’s human rights and well-being. Today, children are our main group of citizens most likely to experience poverty, housing insecurity, and hunger; issues about their health, education, bullying, safety, exposure to violence, use of social media, rising rates of suicide, and mental illness are concerns in every community and home. We can do something about this if we focus on how to protect their human rights – rights to which all people are entitled.
This virtual conference will bring together leaders from different professional areas of life, younger and older, to discuss what children’s human rights are, how they are being implemented, why they are important, and what we can do to improve children’s lives.
