Survey of North American
Welcome to our huge information center on youth rights, called the Survey of North American Youth Rights, or SNAYR. The SNAYR is the most comprehensive database of information on youth rights available today. Read our Intro to Youth Rights!
Points to Ponder
"It is idle to talk of civil liberties to adults who were systematically taught in adolescence that they had none; and it is sheer hypocrisy to call such people freedom loving." - Edgar Friedenberg, The Dignity of Youth and Other Atavisms
"This struggle may be a moral one; or it may be a physical one; or it may be both moral and physical; but it must be a struggle! Power concedes nothing without a demand. It never did, and it never will... The limits of tyrants are prescribed by the endurance of those whom they oppress." - Fredrick Douglass (1857).
