SEND A MESSAGE TO YOUR SENATORS
Urge Your Senators to Ratify the Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities (CRPD)
People with disabilities are among the world’s most marginalized groups. The Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities (CRPD) affirms fundamental protections for people with disabilities around the world and increases access for Americans with disabilities who live, work or travel abroad. The Senate fell just five votes short of the 60 votes needed to ratify CRPD last year. Let’s make sure that doesn’t happen again.

I Urge You to Support the Landmark Disabilities Rights Treaty
Dear [Decision Maker],
I am writing to urge you to support ratification of the Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities (CRPD), which affirms fundamental protections for people with disabilities around the world.
CRPD was inspired by U.S. leadership and is modeled on the Americans with Disability Act. People with disabilities are among the most marginalized groups in the world. The treaty reinforces American values and law to promote, protect and ensure the full enjoyment of human rights by people with disabilities and ensure that they enjoy full equality under the law.
As your constituent, I urge you to stand up for fairness and equal access for people with disabilities across the globe and lend your support to CRPD. Now is the time to elevate America's leadership in advocating fair treatment and protection for people with disabilities around the world.
Sincerely,[Your Name] [Your Address] [City, State ZIP]
