Today is National Call-In Day for the Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities (CRPD)!
The greater disabilities community needs you to call one of these six Senators and tell them that you support the CRPD! The treaty, known as the Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities, has been ratified by 138 countries. The Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities is an international human rights treaty of the United Nations intended to protect the rights and dignity of persons with disabilities. Parties to the Convention are required to promote, protect, and ensure the full enjoyment of human rights by persons with disabilities and ensure that they enjoy full equality under the law. The Convention has served as the major catalyst in the global movement from viewing persons with disabilities as objects of charity, medical treatment and social protection towards viewing them as full and equal members of society, with human rights.
It doesn’t matter if you are from their state or not– the CRPD affects ALL Americans!
