Everyone has a voice. But some voices are quieted by the cruelty in the world. It is left for others to take a stand and make sure those voices are heard just as loudly. That’s where the Youth Labor Committee comes in. We fight to tell the story of those who can’t speak out and to do all in our power to free them from the oppressive grip of those that would keep them silent. United we can make an impact.
