Youth in Action // Vow of Silence—Vancouver, Canada

I am silent, are you listening? (Child’s rights activist—Vancouver, Canada) 

Earlier this week, we told you that youth were going silent to mark the 21st anniversary of the Convention on the Rights of the Child.

Today, youth gathered outside the Vancouver Art Gallery. In solidarity, they stood silent to help protect the basic rights of children internationally.
