Children's Rights. Today, children do not have the same human rights as adults in the United States. WE have a signature campaign to bring attention to this problem. The USA is the only free member state of the UN that has not ratified the Convention on the Rights of the Child. Every November, we send hundreds of colorful hands with the signature of those who support children's rights to Washington, DC. In 2009, we received a commendation by President Obama for our efforts. Want to join us? Request a signature campaign kit by email.
