Wendy Cervantes (Former Staff)Child Rights
On July 18, the Constitution Subcommittee of the House Committee on the Judiciary held a hearing on a proposed parental rights amendment to the constitution (H.J. Res. 110). If adopted, this amendment would threaten child well-being and educational opportunities and prohibit the ratification of the U.N. Convention on the Rights of the Child (C.R.C). First Focus Campaign for Children’s statement for the record outlines the potentially devastating impact H.J. Res. 110 would have on children and summarizes the benefits of ratifying the C.R.C.
