Know Your Rights and Claim Them is a guide for young people, to let them know that everyone under the age of 18 have rights but may not know them. Child rights are unique freedoms and protections designed for young people, and this book gives you the knowledge and tools to claim them. It introduces them and explains why they matter in the real world. From gender and racial equality, to the rights to free expression, health, a clean climate and a sustainable environment, they are yours to claim.
Know Your Rights and Claim Them celebrates the difference young activists have made in every corner of the world, and shows you how to challenge injustice wherever you may find it. It presents expert advice on peaceful protest, raising awareness at school and in your community, starting your own campaign and getting those in power to listen, plus vital guidance on protecting your safety, digital security and mental health.
