In New York City, the American Red Cross promotes the values of the IHL through our work with Red Cross Youth Clubs.
As a way to bring the concepts of IHL to life, Red Cross youth clubs from across the country have been developing IHL Action Campaigns—projects that showcase how those around the world can maintain human dignity in times of conflict.
Here in Greater NY, Red Cross Youth Clubs from several local schools—Townsend Harris High School, Horace Mann High School, Brooklyn Technical High School, Bayside High School and St. Joseph’s College—developed such campaigns and will present them at the Annual Greater NY Red Cross Youth Summit on May 9, 2014.
Below are a selection of some of the projects.
