Ratify the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child (UNCRC)
0 have signed. Let’s get to 100!
"The treaty, which was adopted by the UN General Assembly in 1989, has become one of the most widely adopted human rights pacts. The CRC sets legal standards for social services, education, health care, and laws pertaining to children. Nations that ratify the CRC are bound to it by international law.
The US is the only country in the world that has not ratified the CRC. To put this in perspective, even North Korea ratified the convention in 1990.
Ratifying the CRC is necessary for the US to uphold its commitment as a human rights leader to advocate for better conditions for children and families around the world. These photos show why the US should ratify the CRC to support the world's most vulnerable citizens." (Megha Cherian, U.S. Fund for UNICEF).
We want the UNCRC to be ratified in the United States so that there is guaranteed protection for the children of this country.
