Human Rights Education Disguised Inside Adventure Books

Ashley N.

I loved this story. Set in space the majority of the time - really took me on a good adventure. Those who seek to build up the society and those who seek to tear it down through their maniacal political viewpoints. About love and care of friends and family vs those who seek to destroy it. Loved it!

She wrote this book to help youth understand slavery, particularly modern-day human trafficking. I think she has provided a useful weapon in the fight.

I loved the combination of cool steam-powered contraptions with advanced space technology. The slave ship is actually a space-worthy galleon! Nadler does a great job creating alien life forms, her descriptions vivid and imaginative.

The Sierra Leone Times Said:

"Sarah Nicole Nadler (American author and humanitarian) held a human rights workshop today in commemoration of World Day Against Trafficking in Persons. Her book published earlier this year is also geared toward eradicating discrimination and the disapproval of others, which seems to be a recurring theme for this inspirational American humanitarian."

Where It All Began...

One day I was walking through a library in Los Angeles and stumbled across a large coffee table book called Before They Pass Away by photographer Jimmy Nelson.

I was stunned by the beauty of the photos he had taken of indigenous peoples while traveling on six continents.

The message was not lost on me - this was 2017 and the recent shooting of 15-year-old Jordan Edwards, a young boy of African descent, by a white Texas Police Officer had sparked riots across the United States.

Racism was a heavy topic at the time, and I felt an urge to speak up against what I saw as a basic human rights violation.

So I picked up my pen and wrote Space Patrol!

Allegory has long been used as an avenue of broaching subjects that are difficult to face. The word means: "a story, poem, or picture that can be interpreted to reveal a hidden meaning, typically a moral or political one." (

Through my work with Youth For Human Rights International®, I knew that underneath the violent acts of 2017 lay an even darker problem - the false idea that peoples of other colors, cultures or ways not our own are lesser, base or unworthy of help. This is the basis of acts done by the likes of Roy Oliver, Hitler and others down a long and bloody line.

By writing Space Patrol! I hoped to target teens who are still at the beginning of that cycle--still have a chance to turn their backs on the racism and human-trafficking of earlier generations and build a new world.

My joy in finding that the book was widely accepted around the world, and the doors it has opened for humanitarian work in 13 countries, have created an impact beyond my wildest dreams.
