We Support CRPD

CRPD Call to Action video


In 2009 the U.S. signed the United Nations Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities (CRPD). It is the first human rights treaty of the 21st century and first to address disability rights globally.

Disability and civil rights leaders, parents, and self-advocates are urging their U.S. Senators to support the treaty now. The U. S. International Council on Disabilities is encouraging people to contact their U. S. Senators. View the BRC newsletter for a direct link to resources and additional videos.
