Red Cross International Humanitarian Law Youth Advocate
American Red Cross-Indiana Region
At the American Red Cross our mission is to "prevent and alleviate human suffering in the face of emergencies by mobilizing the power of volunteers and the generosity of donors." One of our 5 essential services is our International Services, supporting our local, national, and international communities through programs to bring awareness to international law, reuniting families who have been separated, and many other programs.
