Another Chance for the CRPD

Advocacy logo for the CRPD - reading inclusion, dignity, equality ratify CRPD yes!
Ratification of the UN Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities (CRPD) will be taken up for consideration again in the U. S. Senate this Tuesday, July 22, 2014. Now would be a good time for United States residents to contact their Senators and urge them to support ratification of the treaty. It has taken too long for the Senate to ratify this uncontroversial treaty, held up only by fringe, ideological fantasies and paranoia unrelated to disability issues themselves.

Call your Senators ... especially if they voted against ratification before.
