Our main goal is to advocate for the rights of
children no matter how, when, or where they were born.

Equal Rights for Children is the first non-profit organization dedicated to advocating for the rights of marginalized children facing discrimination due to circumstances such as their immigration status, disabilities, or family structure. We use fashion, media, art, and film as platforms to raise awareness about the social injustices they face and promote equality. Our work is inspired by the 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) under the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child (UNCRC).

How we are making a change

What we are doing

Learn, Educate, & Engage

Policies & Programs

Take the initiative to abolish laws that discriminate against accessing legal rights, and propose policies and programs that uplift the rights of marginalized children.

Marginalized Children

Enable marginalized children and their caretakers to access education, health services, job findings, grants, and other government benefits.

Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world. Indeed, it is the only thing that ever has.
