On Tuesday November 5th the U.S. Senate will hold a hearing to revive the vote for ratification of the Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities (CRPD), it is a very important treaty, there is still time to ask your Senators to support ratification. To date, 138 countries have already ratified the convention, according to the U.N.
Please support Disability Rights. I encourage you to telephone your Senators and ask them to VOTE FOR RATIFICATION, even if your Senator's office is closed, you can still leave them a voicemail!
The disabled deserve equal rights world-wide! Make your voice be heard!
