Alex was a 14 year old homeschooled girl in Alaska who I handed the mailing list over to along with a professor in New Zealand who had academic and political connections. They kept it running until 2002 when the server hosting the LISTSERV in Indiana caught fire. I wasn’t involved by then and only found that out years later]

GTORY 53

ADDRESS: Y-RIGHTS@SJUVM.STJOHNS EDU
SHORT DESCRIPTION: Discussion on the rights of kids/teens
TYPE OF RESOURCE: MAILING LIST
LAST UPDATED: February 9, 1995
LONG DESCRIPTION: Y-RIGHTS is a general purpose children’s rights discussion group. It is open to everybody, whether kid, teen, young adult, parent, teacher, professor, activist, lawyer, government official – and those who don’t fit those catagories!

There are participants on the list that are lawyers, medical doctors, teachers, professors, teenagers, kids, college/university students, unemployed folks struggling to keep Internet access, government officials, child welfare advocates, social workers, ministers, and people who just won’t be fit in a category – all coming together under the common banner of being interested in the rights of kids and teenagers.

The discussion topics vary from week to week, and it is a very conversational list. Topics such as privacy issues (locker room searches, etc.), suicide, sex, the law, freedom of speech or association, religion, drugs, mental problems, mental solutions, parents (and parenting), are all past, present and future topics. It’s somewhat pragmatic, dealing less with theoretical rights and more with practical issues. [Those more interested in a theoretical discussion on children’s rights will be more interested in GTORY 51 – TCS-LIST@NETCOM COM]
