Tell U.S. Senators: Support the Disability Treaty

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.

    Please amend the law so that people with disabilities can be married and still receive their benefits. It is so unfair that God-fearing have to live in sin just because they cannot afford to stay alive and healthy otherwise. I feel very enslaved to current disability laws.

    In this country people with disabilities have less rights than anyone. I HOPE in the very near future this will change. Inequality is living the life of a disabled person! The disabled people in this country should have the right to marry without the risk of losing what benefits the government would help with. These are the people that need help the most, period. Why should our government help people who don’t want to help them selves and instead the help those who strive who want to. People with disabilities want jobs, a career, a better future, and deserve the respect of it. I truly hope our senators and congress men and women will do what is right and help these beautiful people stop suffering. It’s your choices that will help them make a better impact and a brighter future. The government was created to help the people when they cant help them selves and yet we help all other countries while our people suffer in the USA. All the disabled people want is a normal life like everyone else! Please, help them and make a good conscious decision!
