Youth Advocate Jairo Rodrigues attends CPD: “Young people need to push the agenda of SRHR, as it really affects us”
“All in all, it was amazing for me as a young person to be at a UN event like this. It’s the largest space of political lobbying in the world.” This April, the 52nd session of the UN Commission for Population and Development (CPD) took place in New York. Youth advocate, Jairo Rodrigues from Guyana attended, as part of our Right Here Right Now Strategic Partnership. He looks back at a thrilling and inspiring experience at the United Nations, and has a clear assignment for his home country.
