We want to make sure that people with disabilities have a voice and this treaty will dramatically if passed would be a game changer for the over 1 Billion people with disabilities everywhere!!!!

Level the playing Field Around the World for people with disability to provide Equality, and Justice for people with disabilities Worldwide, Be Treated the same as everyone else, Live as Independently as possible in the Communities around the World and create better opportunities for people with disabilities every where on Earth!!!

Advocates from across the country came together today to share their thoughts and feelings about what could help pass the UN Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities (CRPD). The Call Took place on July 23rd, 1 PM Eastern 2014. But our work is nowhere near done! Your Senators need to continually hear from you and understand that you support CRPD! Show that the community is behind this treaty, and that we want the process to keep moving forward. Sen. Reid also needs to hear from US that we want a floor vote now!

You can visit USICD’ citizen action portrait: www.disabilitytreaty.org to call your Senators! They must hear from the independent living movement now are we will not succeed.

Be an advocate and help this get done because people all around the world are working on this and we must see it through. Sincerely, Les Paul Morgan of the Empowerment Zone Disability Round Table!
