Disability Advocates Urge Action on Treaty

December 4, 2012

After voting on a motion to proceed on December 3, the Senate is closer than ever to ratifying the Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities  (CRPD) — a UN-endorsed treaty guaranteeing rights for people with disabilities.

Advocates for people with disabilities are calling on supporters to call and tweet their senators to urge them to vote for ratification.

More information can be found at the website of the U.S. International Council on Disabilities.
