With my gratitude,
Urge your Senators to ratify the U.N. Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities (CRPD), which would help empower persons with disabilities worldwide to be independent.
Earlier this month, on Jewish Disability Advocacy Day, advocates from coast-to-coast joined RAC (Religious Action Center of Reformed Judaism) staff in Washington, D.C. to meet face-to-face with elected officials and urge them to support CRPD and the ABLE Act. In July 2009, the United States signed but did not ratify CRPD. The Convention is based on the ideals of the Americans with Disabilities Act.
Now is the time to urge your Senators to ratify the Convention and support people with disabilities worldwide. For more on disability inclusion, visit the URJ's resource page.
