Even after 30 years of experience in children’s rights, Lowry is consistently outraged by how government systems fail children. That outrage and indignation were what inspired her to start Children’s Rights and drives her to work to make the system better for kids in the future.

Lowry was working for the American Civil Liberties Union in New York when she decided the most vulnerable members of society needed an organization of their own. About 10 years ago, she started Children’s Rights, a New York-based national advocacy organization for abused and neglected children.

Children’s Rights generally brings class-action suits against state governments, although recently, Lowry personally represented three of the four teenage boys found starving in their New Jersey home, where their adoptive parents were supposedly being monitored by case workers.

The oldest of those boys was 19 and weighed less than 50 pounds and was found digging through a neighbor’s trash for food. His three younger brothers weighed even less. Lowry, who became guardian ad litem for the three younger boys, said she will never understand how the government social workers, who were present in the house, did not report the abuse. The four boys had been adopted, but caseworkers were present because the family was in the process of adopting one of the other foster children living in the house.
