USICD and a community of over 800 disability, veteran and allied organizations, and countless individuals, are committed to United States’ leadership in promoting the rights and dignity of all people with disabilities.
We believe the ratification of the CRPD will allow the U.S. to continue in our global leadership on disability rights. We therefore urge the Senate to continue the bipartisan tradition of supporting the disability community by uniting in support of ratification of the Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities.
Here is the link to the CRPD site. http://www.disabilitytreaty.org/home
