Ask the President to Get the Ball Rolling

The President needs to hear from YOU!

Sign our petition to President Obama, asking him to submit the Convention on the Rights of the Child to the U.S. Senate now.

Before our Nation can ratify a treaty, the Senate must provide its advice and consent; but that can’t happen until the President sends a treaty package for the CRC to the Senate. Although President Obama, Secretary of the State Hillary Clinton, and UN Ambassador Susan Rice have all expressed support for ratification of the CRC, the Administration still hasn’t moved this process forward.

The United States signed the CRC in 1995. We believe 18 years is more than enough time for our government to submit this to the Senate! Remind the President that children and families in America and throughout the world need the United States to act on ratification as soon as possible!
