Universal Children's Day

Friday, November 20th is Universal Children’s Day and we need your help in promoting the day and helping us push the President to send the UN Convention on the Right of the Child (CRC) to the Senate. 

The United States is the only UN member country not to have ratified the CRC after Somalia and South Sudan ratified earlier this year. We are an international embarrassment. 

The treaty can remain pending in the Senate before it is taken up by the Committee for advise and consent. Therefore, we need President Obama to conduct the review of the treaty and send it to the Senate before he leaves office. 

The CRC has helped many countries develop a framework to prioritize children and youth and has improved the lives of millions of kids worldwide. Let's make sure it does the same for our children.
