NJ Students for Change is a grassroots, youth led, student organization committed to advocacy of peace, social justice, and human rights though local activism. We are based in Central NJ, USA.
We are hosting our first youth rally entitled Rise Up! which will target the youth and young people of our town and state. Our focus points in the rally are Global Poverty, HIV/AIDS, Human Trafficking and Child Soldiers.
We have enlisted several speakers who will share their knowledge on the aforementioned topics, along with workshops designed to harbor hands on activities. For entertainment, we have found local bands and spoken word artists who we are close friends with.
While having fun, the purpose of this event is to reach out to people who normally wouldn't care about global issues and give them something to think about.
