Glendale actress promotes human rights

Gary Moskowitz

GLENDALE -- Lynsey Bartilson, 18, is hoping a new book on human rights

will help youth learn from the mistakes of the past.

Bartilson, a Glendale resident and star of the teen Fox series,


“Grounded For Life,” is helping promote a book called “What Are Human

Rights?”, a small pamphlet designed for youth that educates readers on

the United Nations and the Universal Declaration of Human Rights.

The book -- released March 25 -- is a project of Youth for Human


Rights International, a nonprofit organization that promotes tolerance

and peace among youth worldwide. The book is in support of the United

Nations Decade for Human Rights Education.

Youth for Human Rights International is a project of the International

Foundation for Human Rights & Tolerance, which is a nonprofit

organization established in 1997 by members of the Church of Scientology.

Bartilson is also a Scientologist.

“I was raised with an extreme sense of tolerance growing up, and I


wanted to help teach kids how to protect themselves,” Bartilson said.

“The book will be an educational tool and hopefully will help remove

ignorance about human rights.”

“What Are Human Rights” can be obtained by calling (323) 663-6915 or

by writing Youth for Human Rights International, P.O. Box 27306, Los

Angeles, CA 90027.
