Ask Congress to ratify the UN Disability Treaty

The Senate Foreign Relations Committee is currently debating the United Nations Disability Treaty, which failed to be ratified by just 5 votes last year.

This international treaty, the UN Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities, provides a framework for countries to embrace independence and dignity for all people with disabilities, and was modeled after legislation already passed here in the U.S.

If you care about expanding rights for people with disabilities around the world, then make sure your Senators know by sending the message below.

The UN Disability Treaty deserves your support

Dear  

The UN Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities (CRPD) is an international treaty that provides a framework for countries to embrace the rights and dignity of all people with disabilities.



As a constituent who cares about equal rights and dignity for all people with disabilities -- regardless of where they were born -- I'm asking you to help America lead by example on this critical issue by ratifying the UN Disability Treaty.

Thank you,
