Organizations fighting for the rights of seniors and youths.
Administration on Aging
Our vision for older people is embodied in the Older Americans Act and is based on the American value that dignity is inherent to all individuals in our democratic society, and the belief that older people should have the opportunity to fully participate in all aspects of society and community life, be able to maintain their health and independence, and remain in their own homes and communities for as long as possible.
NY State Office for the Aging
The mission of the New York State Office for the Aging is to help older New Yorkers to be as independent as possible for as long as possible through advocacy, development and delivery of person-centered, consumer-oriented, and cost-effective policies, programs and services which support and empower the elderly and their families, in partnership with the network of public and private organizations which serve them.
Youth for Human Rights
YHRI's focus is to teach the Universal Declaration of Human Rights to young people everywhere so that they know and insist on their rights and those of others.
