HEART TO HEART CAMPAIGN
The students of One World Middle School, are the founders and organizers of the Heart to Heart Campaign for Peace and the June 3, 2017, Children's March on Washington. We are fighting for the Senate and President Trump to ratify the Convention of the Rights of the Child (CRC). It's the United Nations UNICEF treaty that includes 42 rights that protect and honor children. We need these rights to be enforced for the well-being of all children and their families.
March with us June 3rd, 2017!!
June 1st is International Children's Day. It is important to recognize that the state of the world must be measured by the amount of care and concern given to kids. We are asking that you come out to support us on our journey to change the world. June 3rd, is an important day because ratifcation of the CRC not only changes the future of kids, but makes the whole world a better and more just place.
The HEART TO HEART Campaign
The Heart To Heart Project is about everyone around the world coming together to make a pledge for peace and writing about their experience with a violent episode that occurred in their life. Thousands of people from around the world shared their stories of abuse, gun violence, bullying and terrorism. This experience for some, was important for them because they were able tell their story for the first time. It became therapy for these victims of violence. We became connected through a common desire for peace.
The CRC Rights
CRC: Convention on the Rights of the Child
The C.R.C. treaty was created to protect children from lack of consideration and abuses by adults. UNICEF created the treaty to make sure all children have a voice and that they all have the same quality opportunities in life. The United Nations intends to make sure all children are taken care of properly by providing a safe place to live, having access to clean water; stopping poverty and having nutritious food to eat; getting a quality education and having good healthcare. Our one goal is to bring awareness to the CRC and the urgent need to protect all children. They are our future and their children grandchildren. Protect them from the danger that is awaiting your grandchildren’s future. We need your support to lobby for U.S. ratification of the CRC. There are 193 countries in the United Nations. 192 countries have ratified the CRC. THE UNITED STATES IS THE ONLY COUNTRY THAT HAS NOT! THE ONLY WAY TO GET THE CRC RATIFIED, IS TO CONVINCE THE PRESIDENT AND ALL CITIZENS TO VOTE YES . DON'T DENY, RATIFY!!!!
They say it is going to take about 30 years to ratify the CRC and we can’t wait 30 years. The sad truth is some children will die.
THAT’S TOO LONG. THE TIME IS NOW TO STOP NEGLECT AND ABUSE OF CHILDREN! THIS IS OUR TIME TO STAND UP AND MAKE THE WORLD RIGHT!!!
WE NEED ALL OF YOUR HELP
Please raise you voice and march with us on June 3, 2017
