Today is our Action Day for the Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities.The opposition has stated that the disability community is uninformed and does not really support the disability rights treaty. We are being significantly outnumbered by the opposition on calls and contacts via social media. We need every U.S. Senate member to be contacted and to know that the disability community is leading the movement for U.S. ratification of this international disability treaty and our voice matters! Have your friends, family, and work colleagues make calls, Tweet and Twitpic, email, and Facebook today to show support.
CONTACTS: You can find phone and email contact information for your senator here and Twitter IDs for your senators here (Tweet using #CRPD #UNCRPD)
