I ask you to take action against two urgent threats to U.S Sovereignty:
1) Dangerous UN Treaty
The Obama Administration has floated a trial balloon to see if there is public resistance to the ratification of the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child (UNCRC). This UN treaty would supercede U.S laws and jeopardize parents' rights to raise their children. A UK official has already stated that the UNCRC would logically lead to the outlawing of home schooling in the UK. So it is pretty clear where this international treaty would lead if it were ratified here.
CALL the White House comment line (9am-5pm M-F) 202-456-1111 and politely state your opposition to the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child. Urge the President to defend our Constitution and our nation's sovereignty (our right to have the laws we want).
2) Dangerous nominee Harold Koh
The president has nominated as legal advisor to the State Department Harold Koh. Mr. Koh is an avowed internationalist who has stated that the UN should have more jurisdiction over the United States. The top lawyer for the State Department should represent Americans, and American interests, not the UN.
Contact our U.S. Senators (contact info below) and tell them to oppose the UN Treaty on the Rights of the Child and to oppose the Koh nomination.
Senator Gregg (202) 224-3324

Senator Shaheen (202) 224-2841 Web Form: shaheen.senate.gov/contact/
Tell our Senators to oppose ratification of this UN Treaty and to uphold U.S. sovereignty.
Time is of the essence. The Koh nomination could come up as soon as Thursday June 25.
