NYRA is a grass roots organization started by Alex Koroknay-Palicz. NYRA was founded on the principal that young people are should be treated as equally to adults as much as possible. As such they devote much of their time to fighting age discrimination. Recently, they had a device that was used to drive away teenagers in Washington D.C. shut off. NYRA believes that the California video game law unfairly discriminates against young gamers and they have fought it at every turn through protests and legal action.
