Support Human Rights for Children

The United Nations General Assembly adopted the U.N. Convention on the Rights of the Child (CRC) 23 years ago in November 2012. The CRC is an international instrument that declares the universal right of children everywhere to survival, health, education, and freedom from exploitation and abuse.

Although President Bill Clinton signed the convention, it has not been passed on to the U.S. Senate for ratification. Sign the CRC petition today urging President Obama to make sending the convention to the U.S. Senate a priority in his second term.
