My Dear Friends,

As some of You may remember, this is a campaign I -- and several other Care2 members -- put heart and soul into over a year ago . . . only to have the petition fail, without receiving enough signatures.

Please help resurrect it and have it ratified!  It's an appalling  fact that the United States and Somalia are the only signers NOT to do so.

Thank You, sincerely, for Your consideration and promotion of this very worthy cause.


his issue has been ignored and unacted upon for much too long.

Please sign and promote this important petition!

"The Convention on the Rights of the Child (CRC) (United Nations, 1989) has been ratified by 193 State Parties (countries).  The only two who have not ratified the convention: the United States and Somalia.  Both of those have signed it, indicating the intent to ratify.  The United States signed the CRC in 1995 under President Clinton.  It has been stalled in the Bush administration (it has yet to be sent to the Senate for ratification), as George W has blatantly expressed his opposition to the Convention."

-Shame on you, USA!
That's all I have say...
-Ben Oscarsito.
