Red Hand Day 2021

On this International Day Against the Use of Child Soldiers, otherwise known as Red Hand Day, we implore everyone to take a moment to reflect on the plight of children in conflict and push for global leaders to put preventative solutions into action to end this major human rights violation.

Dr. Shelly Whitman and General Dallaire have written a powerful op-ed piece in iPolitics.  In this piece, the discussion acknowledges the need for prevention, before abuse ever takes place.
