At the Hudson River Presbytery’s “Changing the Conversation Conference“, participants traced our hands to raise awareness and send the message that it’s not okay to use children under the age of 18 for soldiers. In doing so, the participants joined other Presbyterians who support the Red Hand Campaign that calls for universal ratification and enforcement of the Optional Protocol to the Convention on the Rights of the Child on the involvement of children in armed conflict. Follow Presbyterian efforts to end the use of child soldiers. Like the Presbyterians Say No Child Soldiers Facebook page. Learn more about Presbyterian work to address human trafficking.
