PowertoProtect.org is an organization made up of passionate educators, social workers, parents, community leaders, and volunteers who have been brought together by the shared goal of protecting and advocating for children’s rights.
As the brainchild of community leader and mother of two, Betty Glover, PowertoProtect.org began to form as Glover noticed inequalities between the children within her community and those in other parts of the world. In an effort to bring attention to these inequalities and begin a conversation to address them, Glover got organized and connected with others in the community to create this unique organization to fill the need.
Regardless of socio-economics, geography, or background, we believe that every single child is afforded basic rights specific to their unique vulnerabilities and needs. Our organization is dedicated to raising awareness of the rights of children around the world and advocate for legislation that positively impacts the lives and situations of children everywhere. We are excited to provide well-informed and educational programming regarding issues specific to children and to spotlighting injustices against children.
