I Called, You Can Too!

SR 519 Approaches Half-way Point

The Senate resolution opposing ratification of the UN’s Convention on the Rights of the Child is very near the half-way point, with 16 of the needed 34 cosponsors already signed on. To reach this level of success in so short a time is very encouraging – but we still have a ways to go, and need to get there quickly!

You know as we do that if your senator is a Republican, there is no reason for him not to sign on, so we are targeting that group this week. The only reason many have not cosponsored yet is that they don’t think it is important enough to make the effort – and your phone calls are needed to change that perception. If they get enough phone calls about an issue, it becomes important, so we need you to make SR 519 vital to them!

If Your Senator Is a Democrat...

...don’t quit calling. This is not a partisan issue, and there is a chance your senator may sign on. Find their Washington number at ParentalRights.org/Status, and urge them to oppose international law by co-sponsoring SR 519. And tell your friends so they can call, too!

If Your Senator Is a Republican and Not a Cosponsor...

...he is one of our targets this week. Please take the following actions:

1. Call your Senators. Tell them we don’t want international law running our country. Tell them to seize this opportunity to win a victory against the Obama agenda.

To easily check their status and get their Washington phone numbers, find your state on the list at ParentalRights.org/Status. If you have already called their D.C. office, please call their District Offices at the numbers listed below. Alternate every couple of days and keep calling both offices!

2. Tell your friends. Every chance you get, tell your friends about the dangers of the CRC, the UN’s treaty that would transform parental authority into a treaty obligation of the national government, making Washington responsible to ensure that you raise your kids according to UN standards. Send them to ParentalRights.org to sign the petition (or have them sign a printed copy), and encourage them to join you in calling your senators!

Campaign 519 Beyond Half-way

We have received more than 335 donations so far in our campaign to stop the CRC. Our goal of 519 donors giving $5.19 or more to support Senate Resolution 519 is now within reach, with fewer than 200 donors to go. If you haven’t given yet, please click here to make your contribution and help us reach our goal.

Call Your Congressman

If your Congressman is not already a cosponsor of the Parental Rights Amendment (HJRes. 42), call and urge him to sign on. As the elections approach, candidates from both parties are beginning to realize that the parental rights issue is vital to all Americans. Representatives from either party may wish to sign on now to help their re-election campaigns. You might want to mention this to them, as well.

To take action, visit ParentalRights.org/States and click on your state. Then, if your Congressman is not already a cosponsor, click on his name to get his contact information – and give him a call. Tell him you believe parental rights will be a major issue this election, and that it can only help his chances if he defends parental rights by cosponsoring HJRes. 42, the Parental Rights Amendment. Be courteous, and thank the staff workers for their time.
