UPDATE: Find your name in the petition booklet presented to Senators on November 21!

 In December 2012, the U.S. came close—really close—to ratifying the Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities. Five Senators who voted 'No' stood in the path of the 2/3 vote required to ratify the treaty that protects the rights of people with disabilities. We cannot let this happen again!

Sign below to say:

Dear Senator,

I support the Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities. I urge you, and your fellow Senators, to support the disability treaty when it comes to a vote.

Ratification of the CRPD is free. Ratification does not change U.S. law. Ratification tells the world that the U.S. is serious about protecting the rights of people with disabilities.

Please, Senator, cast a YES vote for the disability treaty when you have the opportunity.

If there are Human Rights respected in the US and around the World, disabled persons are Human! They have rights! Lets respect them and, in addition, be compassionate with them, just thinking how would you feel if you were it their shoes.
