Last month, 154 nations voted to adopt the first-ever international Arms Trade Treaty to help control the flow of arms and ammunition across borders – saving lives, preventing armed conflicts and protecting human rights.
On June 3, countries will have their first oppurtunity to sign the Arms Trade Treaty. Make no mistake, this moment is critical. A signature from the United States is vital to ensuring a strong, effective treaty.
The United States has been a key leader in making this treaty a reality. Now, it needs to be one of the first countries to sign it.
Urge President Obama to sign the Arms Trade Treaty on June 3.
