Approximately 248,000 children — some as young as 12 — were married in the U.S. between 2000 and 2010, most of them were girls wed to adult men. Girls who marry are not only denied their childhood, they are often socially isolated, with limited opportunities for education and employment. UNICEF calls child marriage a harmful practice and a violation of child rights and believes that marriage under age 18 should be prohibited in all circumstances.
Yet there is no federal law regarding child marriage; rather, every state sets its own requirements. In fact, several states throughout the country have no minimum age for marriage. That is why UNICEF USA is a member of the National Coalition to End Child Marriage, working alongside other NGO partners to end marriage below the age of 18 within the U.S. and to repeal loopholes and exceptions that may promote the practice.
In New York State, the minimum age required to be married is 17, falling one critical year short from adulthood. How does Child Marriage affect children in New York? What are the current laws in place surrounding child marriage? How can you take action?
Join us on Thursday, October 29th at 7:00pm EST for an engaging conversation with child rights advocates, leaders in local government and representatives from UNICEF USA. While the webinar will target advocates living in New York State, it is open to all UNICEF USA Supporters!

All children have the right to education according to their own needs. And all children have the right to a safe and healthy life. Music students in WNY have put together an online concert in order to raise awareness about how often the right to education for children with special needs and disabilities is neglected by the society. We learn and play music together, according to our own abilities and talents.
Children worldwide are being faced with life-threatening illnesses, with no vaccine in sight. They have no hope to spare as they get struck with un-curable diseases. The Masks For A Better Life program will hopefully lead to an increase in vaccines within third-world countries. The funds from the mask sales will be donated to UNICEF's Health and Immunization Global Program. The masks will be black and contain the Masks For A Better Life logo and one size fits all.
The Youth For Yemen Project is run by Dear Dunya, a 501c3 nonprofit organization created to elevate the conditions of many middle eastern countries. 100% of the money and supplies raised in the Youth for Yemen Project will go to the UNICEF Yemen Relief Fund and will be tax-deductible.
Already crushed by war and collapsing economic and health care systems, Yemen faces the devastation of COVID-19. With The Yemen Initiative, we hope to donate funds earned from bracelet sales to UNICEF's humanitarian relief efforts. The available bracelet colors are red, white, and black, which are the colors of the Yemen flag.
