 57,000 Young People Protest Message at UN Conference on Youth

Statement signed by 120,000 to be released on Monday

“We do not agree with much of the document produced by governments for
the High Level Meeting on youth,” says Tyler Ament, Director of the
International Youth Coalition. “We also do not agree with the messages
being put out by UN agencies like sex rights for young people and
other objectionable ideas.”

Ament and his colleagues will present a Youth Statement to the UN and
the World that has been signed by 120,000 people including 57,000
under the age of 30. “The Youth Statement recognizes the rights of
parents and calls for policy makers to return to basics and get away
from dangerous ideas that are harmful to young people,” says Ament.

Other speakers include Kristan Hawkins, president of Students for Life
of America, the largest youth pro-life organization in the country;
Leah Darrow, a former America’s Top Model contestant turned chastity
speaker; Thomas Peters, creator of the American Papist blog, which is
one of the most popular Catholic blogs on the web.

Ament and his colleagues will appear at a press conference on Monday,
July 25th at 11:30 am in the offices of C-FAM (211 East 43rd Street,
Suite 1306, New York City). Members of the press can also participate
telephonically by calling 866-906-9888, pin code: 209-4617#).

The International Youth Coalition is a group of young people from

image of God, intrinsically relational, and are called to live a life
with purpose and meaning.  More info at:
