Peace: Arms Trade Treaty

Amnesty International

In countries like Mali, Uganda and the Democratic Republic of Congo, tens of thousands of kids are being used as child soldiers, fighting and dying in armed conflicts fueled by an irresponsible and unregulated global arms trade. In March, the UN will vote on the Arms Trade Treaty – a treaty designed to keep weapons out of the hands of dictators and armed groups who commit terrible crimes against civilian populations, including children. The Arms Trade Treaty isn’t about taking guns away from law-abiding Americans, rather it is about making sure that no child is ever forced to stand on either side of a weapon, no matter where they live.
Call on President Obama to support a bulletproof Arms Trade Treaty.
