Time is running out. Now is the time for the Senate to act! Ratify the Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities – – Twitter Hashtag CRPDWe need to sound the alarm across the Senate to free the treaty now! Let your Senator know this release of the treaty must occur!

This time of the year is significant to all the disability community. We have just celebrated the anniversary of Olmstead and soon it will be the anniversary of the ADA.

Tell your Senator this week at 4th of July picnics, parades, town-halls. Call often in July and spread the word: We will not wait any longer. The time is now!

Visit to take action!
