Issues

NYRA Members Discussing

Young people face discrimination everyday, in their homes, schools, and communities. Part of our mission is to educate people about this discrimination so that they can 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 academics, professional journalists, and activists.

Our issues in depth:
Curfews
Drinking Age
Voting Age

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.
