CRI-Cardozo is a student division of CRI founded by 2010 Cardozo graduates Danielle Goldstein and Benjamin Ryberg. CRI-Cardozo has over 40 student members and is dedicated to raising awareness about human rights abuses against children, both within the law school and legal communities, as well as exploring legal actions against state and non-state party violators. CRI-Cardozo is specifically focused on combating the global exploitation of children as human bombs, child soldiers and human shields, and has been mobilized to help defend these children's rights against any and all parties violating them, including their communities, their governments, their media, and even their families. CRI-Cardozo is fighting for those children's fundamental human rights, focusing on no specific religion or nationality.
