Although the US has not ratified the Convention on the Rights of the Child (CRC), there are a number of cities that have supported its provision. The CRC is important to safeguard children’s rights to safety, to well-being, and to remain with their families.
This June there will be US Conference of Mayors to be held in Honolulu, Hawaii. The conference provides a great opportunity for all of us to defend and promote the rights of children in our country.
HRE USA urges everyone to reach out to their Mayor’s Office by calling and/or emailing to:
- Find out if your Mayor will be attending the conference to be held in Honolulu, Hawaii from June 28-July 1, 2019
- Urge your Mayor to raise his/her support for the CRC city resolution passed in their city as a model for other mayors.
Check here to see if your Mayor is registered to attend.
It might take several attempts to reach the Mayor’s Office, but we all know that change does not come easily. Whether you succeeded or failed in getting an answer, please let HRE USA know.
To get involved and join the working group, please contact Benil Mostafa.
