NYRA members discussing issues relating to youth rights

Young people face discrimination everyday, in their homes, schools, and communities. We seek to educate people about various issues so that they can understand the scope of discrimination against young people in order to help build a more just world. We research these issues extensively by analyzing laws, legal cases, academic scholarship, statistics, and more to help give you the resources you need to advocate for youth rights. We are proud that our research is used by a variety of professionals, academics, journalists, and activists.

NYRA’s mission centers on challenging age discrimination against young people, both in law and in attitudes and supporting the basic freedoms afforded to young Americans in the Bill of Rights.
