About Us

About Global Kids' Human Rights Activism Campaigns.

The Human Rights Activist Project exists to give youth tools to influence public policy, providing a platform for organizing and action using a human rights framework. Youth are often locked out or left out of policy decisions; HRAP is a vehicle for amplifying youth power, as well as creative solutions through campaigns created and led by GK youth.

HRAP youth have worked on over 20 campaigns since 2000, including campaigns to advance the Dream Act, improve food justice in the Bronx, combat racial profiling by the NYC Police Department, influence public policy to support youth leadership in several refugee camps in Sudan, build green roofs on NYC public schools and mandating climate change education in NYC public schools.

HRAP is currently focused on climate change education for all New York City public school students and reducing emissions in NYC.
