Campaign to Ratify the UN CRC
United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child (CRC)
The CRC has been adopted in over 193 nations and is helping to create national policies that will support children's education and well-being. Although the CRC enjoys support almost worldwide, the United States has yet to ratify the CRC. http://www.ohchr.org/en/professionalinterest/pages/crc.aspx
By the end of January 2012, the Campaign for the U.S. Ratification of the Convention on the Rights of the Child (CRC) hopes to receive enough signatures to urge President Barack Obama to send his ratification recommendation to the U.S. Senate in 2012.
The Campaign petition goal is 25,000 signatures. Please read the petition letter, sign and share with your friends, colleagues, and networks.
