Students have played an important role in democracy movements around the globe. This video features four young activists who explain what motivated them to engage in the struggle for democracy and human rights in their native countries: Burma, China, Iran and South Africa, and examines the possibilities available to young Americans who seek to implement change in the issues that matter to them. An accompanying teachers' guide provides additional background resources and activities that encourage students to think of themselves as engaged citizens. The video is available at no charge.
