Show your Senators a Sign: CRPD Update

Here's our shout-out to the US Senate,
but we're sure you can do better;
so get out those art supplies and get going!
So you've written a tweet or a letter to your senator about ratifying the UN's Convention on the Rights of People with Disabilities.  Now what?  Really get their attention by showing your support--join the USCID's latest eye-catching campaign effort and make a sign about why you support the CRPD.  Get creative with it; the more we are, and the more interesting we are, the harder we'll be to ignore!

For those who need a refresher on the CRPD basics, check it out: 
The Convention on the Rights of People with Disabilities (CRPD) is a United Nations convention aimed at assuring that people with disabilities across the globe are given access to the same rights and opportunities afforded by their non-disabled counterparts.  Similar to the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), the CRPD asserts that people with disabilities should have equal access to information, education, medical care, and employment, and should be protected against stigmatization and discrimination by the government. To read more on our site or for links to the UN, continue on here
