Breaking Alert on CRPD! Action Required!

Tuesday the Senate takes up the Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities (CRPD).

The time to act is now. Take a moment and join your voice with thousands of others in support of the treaty. Before you read the next email in your inbox, tweet or call your Senator.

Sample Tweet: @(SenatorID) Support the #CRPD #UNCRPD in 2012! This is a #disability issue and we say vote YES!
