These young people from across the globe are raising awareness about what issues matter to them most. Jaelun Parkerson from the USA kneels with his football teammates during the National Anthem to protest racial injustice; Canadian Autumn Peltier spoke in front of the United Nations to raise awareness about water pollution; and Melati Wijsen from Indonesia started working at twelve-years-old to convince her government to ban plastic bags.

From climate action to cyberbullying, from gun violence to animal protection, these young activists have brought about real change.

“A useful addition to a growing body of literature challenging young readers to help make change in the world.” - Kirkus Reviews
