HOLLYWOOD superstar and humanitarian Angelina Jolie is releasing a book with Amnesty International for teenagers so they understand their rights.
The book is reportedly called ‘Know Your Rights’, which aims to teach young people about their rights. It will be in collaboration with human rights charity Amnesty International.
The book focuses on educating the younger generation on their exact rights when it comes to protesting injustice. It will also highlight the rights laid out in the UN Convention on Rights of the Child.
This is a treaty with a set of promises to children to meet their basic needs signed by 140 countries around the world, including the UK and the USA.
It’s said that the actress decided to tackle the issue after seeing so many youths protesting for Extinction Rebellion and Black Lives Matter earlier this year.

We are excited to announce that we are collaborating with Angelina Jolie on a book for teenagers, with the vision for all young people to know and be able to claim their rights, no matter who they are or where they live. “Today we have youth engaged and ready to fight. But many struggle with misinformation from adults, a lack of awareness of their rights, and a lack of knowledge of how to use the specifics of their rights, applying them to the country and circumstances in which they live. We need to give them the tools to strengthen their fight and empower them,” Angelina Jolie said. ‘Know Your Rights (And Claim Them)’ will be published in September 2021 internationally.
