Thousands urge Senators to vote YES on the CRPD!

U.S. Senators may soon vote for a second time on the Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities (CRPD), which protects the rights of people with disabilities. For the first vote in December 2012, the U.S. came close—really close—to ratifying the treaty. Five Senators who voted 'No' stood in the path of the 2/3 vote required to ratify the treaty. 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.
