We aim to teach, inspire, and empower youth and young adults to use local, national, and international mechanisms of advocacy to advance their grass roots activism.
We partner with organizations to host United Nations 101 workshops to build awareness and fluency of the work of the United Nations and its Agencies.
We aim to engage youth and adults on the essence of what it means to be a global citizen and our collective potential to change the world through interactive workshops, intercultural and inter-generational dialogues, and interactive activities. Our approach is to effectively engage local communities in an inclusive and affirming way to bridge connections between the intersections of global and local human rights.
We are proud to partner with Wayne County Community College District’s Diversity and Inclusion Program (WCCCD) and local NGOs (non-governmental organizations) to host an annual event in commemoration of the United Nations International Day of the Girl (October 11). International Day of the Girl is a day set by the United Nations to encourage its Member States, civil society, and global communities to celebrate the accomplishments of girls worldwide; and to raise awareness and advocacy efforts around the human rights issues girls face.

We will provide educational workshops in the community on the coffee bean and human rights - the journey from the farm to your cup. We will raise awareness of how local community members can become more conscious consumers of coffee and how youth and young adults can learn about job opportunities in the supply chain.
We will be working to create affirming and inclusive communities for women and girls living with disabilities through education and advocacy.
We will be working to raise awareness and advocacy around the United States and the ratification of several human rights treaties including, the Convention on the Elimination of All Forms of Discrimination Against Women (CEDAW), the Convention on the Rights of the Child (CRC), the Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities, and several other international treaties.
In addition to the United Nations International Day of the Girl, we will be promoting different UN international days either through events, social media campaigns, blogs, and more.
