The Convention on the Rights of the Child (CRC)

I am writing you today to ask you to help a cause that’s close to me: children.

The Convention on the Rights of the Child (CRC) is the world’s most universally accepted treaty, a comprehensive statement of the treatment and respect deserved by every child under 18 in the world. The United States and Somalia are the only countries that have not ratified it. For the past 20 years, U. S. Presidents have failed to send the CRC to the Senate for ratification, although President Obama has said that he’d like to see it ratified. Ratification would end the US Government’s exile from global discussions about children and would help children and their families in the United States and everywhere else by making the CRC truly universal.

Please sign our petition to President Obama at to ask him to send the CRC to the Senate along with his recommendation that it be ratified. You can do it easily by visiting

Thank you!


Thank you very much. This will make a positive difference for children everywhere.

Meg Gardinier, Chair, CRC Campaign Steering Committee
