This pilot project, funded by the Ford Foundation, establishes Youth Act! For Human Rights initiatives in two locations (Washington D.C. and Vancouver, WA), conducts social justice activism training for young people within these communities, challenges youth to put their newly learned human rights education into action, and provides a vehicle, via community advocacy summits, for them to showcase the results of their human rights activism.
