This attempt to guarantee certain inalienable rights for children has been ratified by all but two members of the United Nations: the U.S. and Somalia.

Let Congress know that you want it to ratify the Convention on the Rights of the Child

The U.S. and Somalia are the only two nations that belong to the United Nations that have not ratified the Convention on the Rights of the Child (CRC), an international treaty that recognizes the basic rights that all children should enjoy. The 193 nations that have ratified the CRC have committed to act in the best interests of children. Over 40 specific rights are guaranteed and nations must report to the UN periodically about their successes and failures in achieving CRC goals.
