Hello,

I hope you’re having a great New Year. Here at NYRA, we’re having an exciting one. Along with our Southeast Florida chapter, I am in the the midst of a campaign that began in 2008 to end the unconstitutional and illegally-enforced youth curfew in West Palm Beach, Florida. Here’s my story:

I’d love to hear about your personal experiences with youth rights. Does your school have policies you think are unfair? What is your experience at school like, have your rights been taken away? Is your son or daughter unfairly treated in your community? What’s your story? We want to hear from you.

Please send videos, emails, diaries (anything!) to [email protected]. Type out your story or experience or record it in a video and send us the link. You can also call 646-495-9205, extension 33021 and leave a voicemail with your story (please also send an e-mail to the address above to let us know). We will post the most compelling youth rights stories to our website and announce them in next month’s newsletter. Each and every day, NYRA and its membership of dedicated young people across this nation pursue justice. Everyone who faces inequitable treatment can and must demand what is right. Tell us your story and let's work together to make a real difference.

Thanks,

Jeffrey Nadel
President
