What is your government doing about child labor?

1.  Investigate which governments have ratified international laws against forced labor, the worst forms of child labor, and the legal minimum working age.
2.  Petition representatives of your government to sign the petitions if they have not done so.
3.  Create a campaign in your school or neighborhood to have others contact their representatives in government to sign the petitions.
