Join us in guaranteeing and protecting the rights of children globally. The United States Board on Books for Young People (USBBY) has a petition underway to gather signatures encouraging the U.S. Senate to ratify the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child. The U.S., Somalia, and the South Sudan are the only members of the United Nations who have not ratified the document. The petition needs 100,000 signatures by September 20, more than 4000 per day to reach its goal!
It takes just a minute to register and then e-sign. If you agree with the need, sign and then share the information and link. Thank you.
Read the petition and sign.
Both titles pictured below are based on the Convention on the Rights of the Child.
