We are a group of Northwestern University students who are interested in collaborating with organizations working towards the ratification of CEDAW. As of now, we have sent a letter to Illinois Senator, Dick Durbin, applauding his continued support for human rights and asking for any advice he has to offer. We have also drafted an open letter to President Obama, urging him and Vice President Biden to push for ratification by bringing CEDAW before the Senate for a vote. Currently we are examining what our next steps should be and how to align ourselves with other organizations so as to bring more unity to the movement. Join us today! Sign the petition, send a letter to your senator, and speak up now.
