Letter to Sponsoring Councilmembers

Letter 1 should be sent to councilmembers (listed below) who co-sponsored the CEDAW in DC Bill that was introduced in March 2015. 

Dear Councilmember _________,

Thank you for sponsoring the Convention on the Elimination of All Forms of Discrimination Against Women (CEDAW) in DC legislation to “…amend the Office of Human Rights Establishment Act of 1999 to require that all District government agencies conduct gender analyses within their departments and require the Office of Human Rights to produce an annual report for the purpose of implementing a citywide action plan to ensure equality for women and girls in the economic, educational, political, social and cultural arenas pursuant to the convention on the Elimination of all forms of Discrimination Against Women.”

I am proud to live in the nation’s capital and hope that my local government will support the principles of CEDAW and that one day the U.S. Senate will ratify CEDAW to apply to the entire country. Please urge your colleagues to join you in calling for a hearing on CEDAW and a vote to approve it in 2016.

Sincerely,

(Name)
