About Us

The National Youth Rights Association is dedicated to defending the civil and human rights of young people in the United States. We believe certain basic rights are intrinsic parts of American citizenship and transcend age or status limits. As the world's leading democracy, the United States should not lag behind other nations in granting first-class citizenship to its young people.

NYRA supports lowering the voting age, lowering the drinking age, repealing curfews, protecting student rights and fighting age discrimination.
