Let Us Stand With Malala
Do you remember Malala Yousafzai? She's the 15-year-old that the Pakistani Taliban tried to assassinate last October because of her strong voice in the fight for women’s rights and youth education.
The Taliban gunmen shot her in front of her peers -- but she survived and she hasn’t stopped fighting. On July 12, she'll mark her 16th birthday by speaking at the UN. She’ll be delivering the first-ever set of education policy recommendations written for youth, by youth.
I just signed this letter to the UN Secretary-General telling him, and the world, that Malala does not stand alone in her fight for universal youth education.
Will you sign it as well?
Thank you for supporting this cause with me.
Every signature really does make a difference!
