Dear Future Children
Young and ready for action, three girls are making sure their voices are used to create a better future. Rayen protests for social justice in Chile, Pepper strives for democracy in Hong Kong, and Hilda fights against the devastating consequences of climate change in Uganda. Although they face seemingly impossible situations, and activism turns their lives upside down, they never lose sight of their aims.
